How to Cook Bacon, Mushrooms, and Green Beans

If cooking with fresh green beans, bring enough water to a boil to cover green beans in a large pot. Cook for 5-7 minutes and strain water.

If cooking with canned green beans, they are already pressure cooked from the canning process and simply need heated up.

Drain the cans, add the green beans to a pot and warm them up over a medium-high heat. Once heated through, turn the heat down to a low setting to keep warm.

Meanwhile, in a large pan cook bacon until crispy, about 10 minutes, flipping halfway for even cooking. Remove with a slotted spoon.

Leave about 2 tablespoon of bacon drippings left in the pan or wipe the pan clean and use 2 tablespoons of butter or olive oil.

Add mushrooms and cook for 6 minutes. Stir in minced garlic and cook for 1 additional minute.

Add bacon and green beans back to the pan. Season with salt and pepper to taste and stir.
