Delicious! *wiping drool from chin* Heavenly! Of course, how can anyone go wrong with bacon, sugar, and green beans?? This recipe even works well with frozen green beans. Perfection in the form of a side dish. Thanks for posting the recipe!

These were great! I served them at Christmas dinner. I made them without the onion because two guests don't like onions,but will make them with the onion next time. THis is defintly a keeper for us.

Tasted just like Cracker Barrel!. DH had a craving for beans like this, and I'd never made them, so we looked up this recipe and cooked them up to go with a mid-week dinner. Everyone enjoyed them and they'll be on the table frequently in the future.
