Serve this simple, crock pot side dish as an alternative to green bean casserole--with green beans, tomatoes, bacon, brown sugar and red beans.

  • Servings: 12

Ingredients:

1× 32 oz pkg Frozen Green Beans
1× 24 oz can Petite Diced Tomatoes
¼ cup Brown Sugar, packed
1 lb Bacon
1 Large Onion, diced
2 Tbsp Seasoned Pepper
1 Tbsp Seasoned Salt
1× 16 oz can Red Beans

Directions:

Place frozen green beans into a large crock pot. Stir in tomatoes and brown sugar. Set temperature to high. Cut bacon into chunks, fry until done, but not real crisp. Drain nearly all fat from skillet. Brown diced onion in skillet. Stir bacon, onion and seasonings into green bean and tomato mixture. Stir well and cook about 3 hours. Add red beans and continue cooking about another half an hour.

Helpful Tips:

This is so easy to make, and serves a lot, so it great for potluck dinners. My family prefers it instead of the traditional green bean casserole. It is delightfully different and is easily doubled or tripled for big crowds.
