Dear readers, I hate that I have to do this to you, but there is just nothing to be done about it. This week’s recipe for Crockpot Southern Green Beans with Bacon is a repeat from January 2015. I came down with an insanely severe case of food poisoning this week from one of my favorite restaurants, so food and I aren’t currently the best of friends, and I’m even more pissed off that this event was a result of eating at a restaurant that B.O.B. Bob and I visit often and enjoy so much.
While tempted to let Crockpot Monday pass by this week unobserved due my inability to get off of the couch where I currently lie huddled in a ball of pain, I’m choosing instead to go back in time and share a recipe that both B.O.B. Bob and I instantly fell in love with. Brenna is keeping guard over me, and checking to make sure that I am alive every time she struts through the room, and B.O.B. Bob is keeping me stocked in sweet tea, water, and random bits of digestible food, so hopefully by next week Crockpot Monday will be back in full swing.
In the meantime, please enjoy this recipe revisit, and feel free to check out the original post HERE. I’ve also created a CROCKPOT MONDAY TAB in the Faith, Hope, Love, & Luck header menu, where you can go at any time to check out all other past Faith, Hope, Love, & Luck crockpot recipes. This seems like the perfect opportunity to ask if you have an idea for a future crockpot recipe, or something you would like to see? Share it with us in the comments or in a private email for your chance to be featured in an upcoming Crockpot Monday recipe. We look forward to hearing from you, and I promise I’ll make it off of the couch eventually, even if it’s only because Brenna needs more nibbles in her food bowl.
- 2 Bags Frozen Green Beans
- 4 Cups Water
- 6 to 8 Slices Bacon, Cooked and Crumbled
- 4 Tablespoons Light Brown Sugar, Packed
- 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 Teaspoon Dry Minced Onion
- Toss everything in the crockpot, on high setting, for at least 8 hours.
- These green beans were not super salty, because of the bacon I used. You may need to add a bit of salt at the end of the cooking time if you feel they aren’t salty enough for you.
- Throw in a finely chopped onion if you have one on hand, in lieu of the dry minced onion.
- Replace the bacon with a ham hock, diced ham, or country ham.
- Add freshly ground black pepper before serving.
