1 1/2 pounds
fresh green beans, trimmed
sliced Canadian bacon, cut into strips
ground black pepper to taste
2 (10.75 ounce) cans
condensed cream of celery soup
1 1/4 cups
dry bread crumbs
This is pretty much what you would expect from a 'cream of whatever soup' recipe - nothing fancy, but quick, easy and tasty. The only thing I did differently was to sautee the onion in the bacon grease (I don't like boiled onions), and I also used Italian breadcrumbs with a little garlic powder mixed into it. Not bad at all. Thanks!
I was disappointed with this recipe. The flavor of the Canadian bacon was lost in the beans. I didn't care for the bacon being in strips, either. It just didn't meld into a good consistency. I think this would have been much better if the bacon was chopped instead of sliced. This recipe was nothing more than your generic Campbells green bean casserole with out-of-place Canadian bacon strips. I will probably try this again using regular crumbled bacon as this is just a regular recipe. I don't feel the recipe warranted the very costly Canadian bacon. I will also cook a little longer. I like a bit of crispness in green beans, but these still tasted a bit like crunching on undercooked beans. Sorry, 3 stars is all that I could give.
We really liked this recipe!! I bought 1.75 lb of green beans, and by the time I had trimmed them I didn't seem to end up with too many.. SO, to compensate for the smaller amount of green beans, I only used 6 oz of Canadian bacon and only 1 can of cream of celery soup.. It is the perfect consistency! I love the flavor that the Canadian bacon adds. Oh, and rather than use bread crumbs for the topping I used crumbled crackers. Thanks for a great recipe. I can't wait to make again because it went waaaay too fast! Next time I will buy 2.5 - 3 pounds of green beans!!
this is the perfect remedy for a cold autumn day! I only had about half the beans the recipe called for so I sauteed some fresh mushrooms with the canadian bacon and stirred fresh chopped tomato into the casserole as well. Next time think I may add a wee bit of garlic powder. Thanks for a yummy recipe!
we loved this side dish. i am always trying to find new ways of getting my carnivore of a boyfriend to eat more vegetables, and this recipe did the trick. he even liked it better than the traditional green bean casserole.
This had great flavor, I had some extra canadian bacon to use up so when I came accross this recipe I gave it a shot. I used a can of green beans & a 1/2 bag of frozen veggies. And of course I threw in some shredded cheese because everything is always better with cheese. I also used 2 cans of cream of chicken instead of cream of celery.
Good foundation. Simple and satisfying.
I added a few potatoes and carrots.
This was lovely! I didn't have quite enough green beans and only mushroom soup so I made up the vegetable requirement with celery, to try and stay in keeping with the original recipe.
