Really yummy recipe. I made it for a Mother's Day party and it was a big hit. I used thawed frozen whole green beans and it turned out great. I think I'll be going back to this recipe again and again.. Thanks!

My husband and I thought these were delicious ! I used 2 cans of whole green beans instead of fresh and omitted the thyme and walnuts. Thank you !!

Followed your recipe for the most part, but I did steam the beans for 12 minutes & then went from there! Really liked the combo of garlin, thyme, bacon & nuts with these beans, & I'm gonna be making this again soon, for company thie coming Saturday! [Made & reviewed in RSC #15 Contest]
