    2) Add the butter to the mushroom mixture, once melted, add the flour and cook for a minutes then add all the liquids along with the spices, bring to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes, in the meantime, boil the green beans in some heavily salted water for 10 minutes, drain and set aside.

    3) In a large skillet (make sure itís big enough to hold everything including the soup) add the olive oil, heat to medium, add the bacon and onions, cook until the bacon is slightly crisp around the edges, add the partially cooked green beans and cream of mushroom soup, cook for 10 minutes, then sprinkle with French fried onions and serve!
