The original recipe I found here calls for bacon that you fry first, then add the green beans. Well the story goes like this..... One day I wanted these green beans and I didn't have any bacon. I did however have the bacon bits that are made with real bacon.... You know the ones you find in the salad topping section? So I used them instead. Honestly, I like them better with the bacon bits (as long as they are real! Don't get the fake ones!) I am not kidding, these are super good!!
Cracker Barrel/Texas Roadhouse Green Beans Copy Cat
- 2 cans green beans undrained
- 1/4 of a yellow onion chopped
- 1/3 cup real bacon pieces bacon bits
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- Mix all ingredients together in sauce pan. (This recipe is really flexible. You can add more bacon, seasonings onion etc.) Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover. Let simmer for 45 minutes. The simmering is what gives them such a good flavor!
- Enjoy and serve!
