"My husband wants desperately for me to patent and sell this recipe to a canner, but I want to share it with you! It is a huge hit at Thanksgiving and Christmas in place of the standard green bean casserole."

Directions

  1. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels, reserving 1 tablespoon bacon drippings. Crumble bacon.
  2. Bring water to a boil in a skillet. Add brown sugar, vegetable seasoning, and bacon drippings to water; cook and stir until brown sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes. Add green beans and bacon to brown sugar mixture; season with salt. Reduce heat and simmer until green beans reach desired tenderness, about 10 minutes.

I cut back the brown sugar a little bit, but would cut in half in the future, since it was just a little too sweet for us. This well could be just a personal taste preference, since we seem to like food less sweet these days. I bought a bottle of the McCormick Vegetable Seasoning just for this recipe, and I can see using it a lot on steamed veggies which often can use a little flavor boost. This was a very good side dish to a baked Christmas ham, and I would make again. Dana P, thanks for sharing your recipe!
