I'd be the first to admit that I have no talent for cooking and my family cheerfully puts up with my lack of skill. But tonight I hit a winner with the "green beans deluxe". I added fresh mushrooms while cooking the beans and they were a nice touch. Since I didn't have any cherry tomatoes, I coarsely chopped up a large tomato and added a tiny pinch of sugar. Even my son (who is a recovering anorexic) ate these veggies and declared them "fine"! Coming from Mississippi, I must say the taste has a Southern style flavor - makes me feel like I've gone home. Thanks, Inez, for helping me get over my cooking slump.

Oh my my my! This is the best way to fix green beans EVER! This dish is just full of flavor. The tomatoes really pick up a great amount of flavor even though they are added at the last minute. I only wish I had made more so we could have leftovers tomorrow! Just delicious and I am sure they would make a great side dish for any kind of poultry, meat, or fish. I served these with your Basil Cream Chicken (Basil Cream Chicken).I will be making these again very soon. Inez, this is my new favorite of yours!!!

I chose this recipe as the vegetable for our Christmas Eve family dinner and as always, Inez didn't let me down. Fabulous yummy side dish that even included Christmas colors! Thanks so much, Inez!

This is the absolute best green beans recipe ever! I've tried so many and some were good, but this was amazing! The bacon added so much to the taste as well, the cherry tomatoes were yummy too! Will make this a regular side dish from now on.

I've seen my Mammaw cook beans in bacon fat, but I've never been brave enough to try it myself. Glad I was! These were a tasty sidedish to crocked brisket & potatoes. The beans remained firm enough to have some presence, and were perfectly accented by the drippings, the garlic, & the juiciness of the tomatoes. I didn't have any almonds to throw in, can't wait to see how they will work in! Thanks Inez!

All my guests asked for the recipe! We made this dish with turkey bacon (about 6-8 slices) and it was still really yummy! A perfect vegetable side dish.

I steamed the beans, and then added the rest of the ingredients. I also added fresh mushrooms and some chopped red pepper. Delicious served with pork roast! Thanks!

Made this when DH had requested fresh green beans for dinner and gave this a try. I didn't have cherry tomatoes so used some left over stewed tomatoes and it was really good with a wonderful blend of flavors. Thanks so much for posting.
