Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
Green Beans (fresh, frozen, canned, French style any kind works)
If using fresh or frozen green beans, cook them fully. If using canned beans, heat just to point of being hot.
White Beans (dry or canned any variety that is all white) I usually use Great Northern Beans
If using dry white beans, cook them according to package instructions until soft (no crunch to them). If using canned beans, heat just to point of being hot.
Butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional bacon

Quantities depend on what is needed. Generally the ratio is somewhere between equal portions of green beans and white beans to twice the amount of green beans as white beans. I plan on at least a cup per person and they reheat well.

Directions:
Directions:
Drain liquid from all beans (reserve some of the juice from canned white beans). In a microwave safe dish, place desired amount of heated green beans. Add at least 2 tablespoons of butter, along with salt and pepper. Stir together until butter is melted. Mix in desired amount of white beans. If mixture seems dry, pour in a little of the white bean juice (or just a bit of cream or milk, if you do not have bean juice). Cover and heat in microwave until hot. Serve.

Option:

Fry bacon until crisp (amount to your own taste). Mix in to 1 tbsp bacon grease and crumbled bacon instead of the butter in the recipe.
