Sweet Bacony Arkansas Green Beans

Scripture to Live By:
Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger,  and give no opportunity to the devil.  Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need.  Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.  Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.  Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
Ephesians 4:26-32

Recipe Post:
I wanted to make a green beans casserole that was different than the one I normally make, with the onion rings and cream of mushroom soup.  I found this one at I have changed the amounts of the ingredients to adapt it to our taste.  Here is my rendition of it. I really like it and think you would enjoy it as well.

Ingredients needed:
5 cans of green beans (drained)
3 Tablespoon of Hormel Real Crumbled Bacon
(only 25 calories per Tablespoon)
1/8 cup of brown sugar
2 Tablespoons of butter or margarine (melted)
4 teaspoons of soy sauce
1/2 teaspoons minced garlic

Drain green beans and set aside.

Mix brown sugar,  margarine, soy sauce and garlic together and add bacon pieces. Heat mixture until butter is melted and brown sugar is liquid.

Pour the mixture over the green beans and blend in gently to coat all the green beans.

Pour beans with sauce into crock pot and cook for 2 hours, or put in in a 9 x 13 inch oven safe dish and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. (I prefer cooking them in the crock pot.)

  I served these at a mission conference meal with Spaghetti and meat sauce, salad, garlic bread and dessert.  They are very tasty.  They are a favorite with me. I prefer these over the green bean casserole mentioned above.  Why not give them a try?

These are so tasty, I can make a complete meal of these green beans.
