Simple Canned Green Beans with Bacon, Mushrooms, and Onion is a quick recipe full of smoky bacon and mushroom and onion flavors. Made with pantry ingredients, this is a perfect recipe for a busy weeknight.
Growing up I remember the big pressure cooker on my grandma's stove. She was always cooking up a big batch of green beans with bacon, mushrooms, and onions.
Green beans, especially in the summer, were a common side dish. Some batches would be made with snap beans fresh from the garden, but often in a pinch, canned green beans would work just fine.
This quick recipe can be made from simple ingredients from your pantry.
- green beans
- olive oil or butter
- salt and pepper
