The fine folks over to Del Monte sent me a welcomed package after just moving to our new house. A big box of canned goods! While I love fresh and frozen vegetables, the convenience of canned vegetables leaves me coming back to them. So, when we had friends over for steak dinner grill night, the canned veggies came in handy. And a great bottle of wine!
When we grill steak, the steak ends up taking up the majority of the steak. Makes having baked potatoes difficult. Makes fitting veggies in hard too. I did a little searching for a new, easy way to combine the potatoes and veggies and settled on a warm green bean potato salad.
While the steaks went on the grill, I added the red potatoes cut into quarters, peeled and smashed a few garlic and covered them with garlic. At the same time I fried up some bacon in a large cast iron skillet. Once the potatoes were soft, I tossed them over in to the skillet with bacon grease to crisp up and then transferred them to a separate serving dish. Once the steaks were ready to be pulled from the grill, I drained two cans of green beans and poured them into the same bacon laden skillet to fry up.
The great thing about canned veggies, they cook quick and are ready just in time. Plus, they are canned at their peak of ripeness. Right before I transferred the beans to the pan the potatoes were in, I squeezed some lemon juice over top.
What makes anything good, great? BACoN!!! Be sure to sprinkle plenty of that bacon over top of the potato salad.

I'll be honest, I don't use many canned veggies, but canned tomatoes are definitely a staple in my pantry! And hey, anything with bacon is better!
5-can beef stew!
Pineapple upside down cake, stewed tomatoes, spaghetti sauce with canned tomatoes, jello with fruits, etc. LOL Yep, I love the variety of fruits and veggies you have and I trust your name for flavor in the can.
We use canned vegetables or fruits in almost every recipe! One of my favorites would be hamburger casserole. With two ever-hungry college students, I'd love to win the give-away. 🙂

I like to make cherry cobbler with canned cherries!
I love del Monte. I have a set of cannisters that were for sale about 24 years ago. They are such bright colors and they decorate my kitchen cabinets still today. (They are probably collector's items today.) I make a quick veggie soup with del Monte canned corn, green beans and green peas for Sunday suppers. So easy and ready in minutes because all the work is done for me
Wishes for tasty dishes,
Mandarin oranges, pineapple, peaches, strawberries, bananas, blueberries, grapes, and a box of vanilla instant pudding! Delish...kids LOVE it!!
