We enjoyed these green beans! I don't care for onion so left it out, otherwise made as directed. With canned beans, soy sauce and bacon I found them a little salty, but still good. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT6, Zwizzle Chicks

These were so good! I used real bacon pieces, and jarred garlic, and must admit I didn't really measure much, just kind of eyeballed (and doubled the green beans for our family). This really jazzed them up. Thanks for sharing!
