Summer side dish

Hi Friends, thought I would share a favorite green bean recipe with you all today. I took this to our son and daughter-in-love's house for a Birthday/Father's day celebration last week-end. It's easy and quick to fix and something different for green beans. It's called Garlic and tomato Green Beans.
To begin, seed and chop about 4 Roma tomatoes. Reserve until later.

Then slice about 4 pieces of thick bacon into about 1 inch pieces..

Brown the bacon in a skillet. Remove and save about 2 T. drippings.

Take out of the freezer 3 bags of steam-in-the-bag green beans.

Cook on high in the micro-wave about 2 and 1/2 minutes. This is about "half" of the recommended cooking time. You don't want them all the way done.

Add your beans to hot bacon drippings and cook until just crunchy tender or to your taste. You need to watch them closely and keep turning them with a spatula.

Season with seasoned salt to your taste and pepper if desired.

Add in the tomatoes and 2 Tablespoon of minced garlic . Cook, stirring constantly over medium high heat about 2 minutes or so.

Add in cooked bacon pieces and stir till blended.
Now they are ready to be served and enjoyed!
Great to serve with grilled chicken or steaks!!
Hope you are having a great Wednesday, Blessings
