In a medium skilled I heat 1 Tbsp of butter and fry 1 can of drained green beans for about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile In separate bowl I wisk 3 eggs with little bit of milk(1/4 cup) and little bit of salt. Then pour this mixture on little bit fried green beans, cover and turn the heat down to low. Simmer for 10-15 minutes and it's done. It taste delicious.

I my self hate canned green beans, but this actually taste good.

Recipe: Green Beans and Ham

By Free2B 217 350

A dinner plate of green beans and ham.This is simple, down-home food. It was one of my favorites growing up and still is now. It's simple and a really great way to get kids to eat veggies - the beans taste too good to resist. I like this best served exactly like Mom used to do it - ham sliced on a platter, beans and potatoes swimming in a rich broth, and sides of biscuits or rolls, homemade jam, and marinated fresh vegetables (what I call quick pickles) to complete the meal.

I'll list the ingredients exactly like I made this for dinner tonight. You can vary the amounts of everything to suit your family needs.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (4 lb.) ham
  • 2 lbs. fresh green beans, stem end trimmed off, broken in half
  • 4 medium large potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • water
  • ham flavored bouillon

Quick Pickles:

  • 1 large tomato, in small wedges
  • 1 small onion, cut in half and sliced
  • 1 cucumber, peeled (if you like it that way) and cut in thin slices
  • 1 handful green grapes
  • 1 handful red grapes
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 - 2/3 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. basil
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • fresh pepper

Directions:

Put the ham in a roasting pan and add water to come about half-way up on it. Roast it at 325 degrees F for 1 1/2 hours. Check the water periodically to make sure it's not cooking dry. You may have to add a little more water, but don't add too much because you want the richest broth you can get.

While it is roasting, prepare the quick pickles. You can use any veggies you like. Sliced peppers taste good and yellow peppers make the pickles even prettier. Hot peppers add a little zing, and are especially good with the grapes (grapes add a really nice note - vinegary vegetables, then the sweet crunch of the grapes. Adding them is the only thing I change from Mom's meal).

Cut them into bite size pieces. Put them in a bowl. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a jar with a tight lid. Shake them until the sugar dissolves, then pour over the veggies. Stir them from time to time to make sure they all get time in the marinade.

When the ham is done, take it out of the broth and wrap it in aluminum foil. This will keep it nice and hot until you serve it. Put the prepared green beans in the broth, and add water to come close to covering the beans. Taste it, and add enough ham bouillon to make it taste really good. I never add salt to this - the ham and the bouillon are salty enough. (If you haven't tried ham bouillon, you should. It is really good to have on hand for flavoring bean soups, vegetables, and all sorts of things).

On the stove top, put the pot on medium heat and bring the beans to a nice simmer. Peel and cut the potatoes, and add them to the pot. Put the biscuits or rolls in the oven. The beans, potatoes, and biscuits should be done at the same time, but if the biscuits are done first, take them out of the oven and cover them with foil or a clean dish towel to keep them hot.

While everything is finishing, drain the marinade off the veggies and put them in a nice serving bowl. In such a short time, they will have a nice pickly taste, but still have their own fresh taste, and be nice and crunchy.

Recipe: Garlic Green Beans with Tomatoes

By dorothy wedenoja 170 111

A different twist on green beans.

Ingredients:

  • 1 can green beans, drained
  • 1 can stewed tomatoes
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheese
  • seasoned salt and pepper

Directions:

Drain green beans. Add stewed tomatoes, about 1 teaspoon minced garlic, seasoned salt, and pepper according to your taste.

Simmer on top of stove about 20 minutes. Add cheese. Stir until cheese is starting to melt. That's it. We love it this way!

If you don't have any cheese, its good with the tomatoes and garlic with the green beans. Try it, I think you will like it.

Recipe: Green Beans and Potatoes with Bacon

By Free2B 217 350

This is real comfort food. The recipe calls for a full pound of bacon - you can cut that down if you like. I make it with the whole pound since we rarely eat bacon.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of lean bacon, chopped
  • 1 med onion, chopped small
  • 2 lbs frozen or fresh green beans
  • 3 - 4 medium potatoes, pared and cut into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 cup water

Directions:

Fry the bacon up. When it is about halfway done, drain all but 1 Tbsp. of the grease off (I save the grease for cooking). Add in the onions. Cook until the bacon is crispy, and the onion is soft. Add the water, green beans, and potatoes. Cover and cook until the veggies are almost done, then leave the lid off so that it thickens up a bit.

Delicious!

Recipe: Green Beans with Bacon Vinaigrette

By Elaine 173 889

I think rather than making the typical green bean casserole with mushroom soup for Thanksgiving, this would be a new twist on it.

Ingredients:

  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 2 lbs. green beans, trimmed
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 2 shallots, sliced or you could substitute green onions
  • 2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. whole grain mustard
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil

Directions:

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add 1 tablespoon salt. Add the green beans and cook until just tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and run under cold water to cool; transfer to a serving bowl.

Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes; transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool, then break into pieces.

Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon drippings from the skillet and return to medium heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in the vinegar, mustard, oil, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add to the green beans, along with the bacon, and toss to combine.
