Easy Homestyle Green Beans

I found this recipe several years ago while trying to figure out how to make green beans taste like those at my favorite restaurants or even my Grandma's.  She always told me to use ham & onion but I could still never get them quite right.  I was so excited to find this recipe and even more excited that you can use canned green beans.  I make these quite often.  I've even made it in a large quantity (4-5 cans green beans) to take to potlucks.  I always get rave reviews and everyone thinks these are fresh green beans!!  I've adjusted the recipe to make it even simpler, but you can get the original recipe here.

 You will need 2 slices of bacon diced, 1 14.5 oz. can cut green beans, 1 tsp. chicken bouillon granules, and 1 tsp. onion flakes.

 Cook bacon pieces until crispy.

 If you want, you can drain some of the fat but usually I don't!!!  That's what makes these so yummy!!!

 Add in green beans (do NOT drain), onion flakes, and chicken bouillon.

 Simmer 10-15 minutes!

Serve as a side to your favorite meal!!!
