I was so excited when I came across this recipe. My grandmother (now deceased) also had this recipe, but it was lost a few years ago. I made it for thanksgiving and it brought back so many good memories! The recipe is delicious just as it is.
This is a nice way to prepare canned green beans. I did reduce the sugar to 2 tablespoons and reduce the cider vinegar to 1/4 cup. I might try white wine vinegar next time. I was a little confused that the recipe calls for 4 strips of bacon as well as 1/4 cup bacon bits in the ingredient list. I only used the 4 strips of bacon and omitted the bacon bits.
I made this dish for Thanksgiving and a potluck this year and was very pleased. I found that the vinegar taste was a bit overwhelming for me so the second time, I only used 1/4 cup of vinegar which made a big difference. Thanks for the recipe!
This was a nice and easy side to my ham dinner. Followed directions, used frozen instead of canned (what was on hand). Didn't use the baco's. Had bacon left over from breakfast so i used that up. (about 6-7 pieces cut up). Will make again.
I found this recipe when looking for something to go with a Bratwurst Dinner for fifty people. I tried it at home, liked it, then made it for the group. It was the most asked for recipe of the weekend. I cut the vinegar by about 1/3, did not use the bacos and stirred the crumbled bacon in at the last minute.
I used 2 cans of greens, and didn't use Bacos, the sauce was great, it's easy to adjust to just the flavor your family likes. Also, used Onion powder in place of onion/dried onion with no problem. My family loved it!
This was easy to make and my family loved it. I used 3 cans of french-cut green beans, and next time I will make sure to drain them well, as the extra juice made it a little runny. I'll bet it would be good with a mixture of green beans and those yellow wax beans. Definitely a keeper.
