    Chippie1's Note:

    Recipe comes courtesy of "Emeril Live". I watched him make these recently and just had to give them a try. Very good side dish recipe and even my 11 year old scarfed them up. Did modify the recipe to fit our tastes a bit, but did stay with all of his ingredients. Prep time includes trimming the beans, chopping the bacon, and mincing the garlic & shallots.

      Not enough taste even with bacon involved. I would not make again.

      Great recipe. Very easy to make. Just one warning - I made this as a side dish with a roasted chicken so I had fresh chicken stock on hand. Do NOT use any stock that has an abundance of pepper (i.e. cayenne, paprika, etc.). It just added a weird bitter taste that I'm sure wasn't supposed to be there. Other then that, it was really good. Thanks for posting!
