I'm a big person of "tradition" when it comes to green beans, and how they're prepared for the holidays. However, after making these for the in-laws a few weeks back, it was demanded they arrive with me on Turkey Day this year. LOL! Abosultely loved them they say. The "glaze" made with the butter and brown sugar, surprised us all in how good it melded with the garlic and green beans. I did do it a little different because the first time I made these, I completely read the directions wrong...I diced the bacon (added an onion for personal taste) and cooked them off with the garlic before melting in the butter and brown sugar. Not sure how significantly what I did changes the entire recipe, but everyone loved it. I even passed it to my mother Peg629, (hey mom!) and they enjoyed it too! Thanks for sharing Joy! :)
