I’ve been SOOOO hungry for Old Fashioned Green Beans with Bacon! We had green beans planted in the garden this year, but, for whatever reason, they didn’t produce that much. I decided to use the frozen green beans that I had in the freezer, since I’ve been so hungry for them . These Old Fashioned Green Beans with Bacon turned out AMAZING!!! Just a few ingredients and a few minutes to put it all together in the slow cooker!!

Having all that time in the slow cooker for the flavors to blend is definitely worth the short amount of time it takes to put together! Yummo!!!
