We eat a lot of canned green beans, because it's something that ALL of us like. Take advantage where you can, right? Dumping a can of green beans into a pan doesn't result in much flavor. I grew up with my Mom and Grandma "livening up" the beans. Of course it's not extremely healthy, but it's good nonetheless, and really it's not that bad when compared to, say, a piece of cake!
2 slices of bacon
2 cans green beans
2 tbsp butter
Place bacon in a saucepan over med-high heat until sizzling. Add in green beans and butter. Heat until boiling, then simmer for at least 10 minutes.
