Looking for new ways to incorporate canned green beans into your meals? Check out these delicious and easy canned green bean recipes that your whole family will love.
Some canned food just isn’t as good as fresh but in many cases, I will argue that canned green beans are better. Fresh is great in some recipes but for others, a can of french cut green beans is my go-to.
Canned green beans are also so much cheaper than fresh, especially when they are out of season. They are a great staple to keep in your pantry and they don’t have to be boring.
My favorite canned green bean recipe for a quick side dish is to cook up some onions and garlic, saute the green beans with them and add some cooked bacon. Even better if you top it with a sprinkling of freshly grated parmesan.
Now for holidays, and sometimes just because, green bean casserole is a favorite around here. I make mine with homemade cream sauce, bacon, and lots of cheddar cheese, yum!
