Mama's Cooked to Death Green Beans


  • 1 50oz can green beans Mama uses Hanover brand
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp oil (optional) I honestly don't add it because I think the butter and grease from the bacon is enough
  • a few slices bacon cut into 1 inch pieces
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Cook onion in butter til soft. Add other ingredients and cook for about 1.5 hours. I like to add my bacon with my onion and cook it a little before adding the rest of the ingredients, to give it a little more texture and color. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
