What a delicious recipe!! I added the optional mushrooms and waterchestnuts, but left out the almonds because my kids won't eat those. Very well seasoned and a great way to dress up green beans. Thanks for sharing this.
These green beans are so good! I cooked the beans just until they were crisp-tender. Then I spooned off some of the bacon fat before finishing the dish. I added everything except the pimentos (didn't have any). We liked the crisp almonds and water chestnuts with the beans. Very nice side dish! Thanks JoAnn!
I did not add the jar of pimentos because I didn't have them in the house. I think that the beans tasted pretty good without them. It had a crispy, tasty difference. A sided dish that I will try again.
Wow! This is a great recipe! I just made it for Christmas dinner and everyone loved it. I did leave out the pimiento and mushrooms as they are not to our taste. I will definitely make this dish again.
Used the mushrooms and leaving out the pimentos was the only change I made - my gang loved this with our New Year's Ham dinner. It is a keeper - thanks !
Excellent. I added mushrooms and used pancetta instead of bacon.
Yum! Made this for Easter and it was very well-received. I added all of the optional ingredients - mushrooms, slivered almonds, and water chestnuts - added a nice crunch to the dish - thanks for a great recipe!
This was great simply with the main ingredients and none of the optional stuff. Even better the second day!
Great dish! Love the flavor and browned bits from the bacon give it a real 'homecooked' look. Delicious. You must drain the fat off though or it'll be swimming in it IMO. Thanks for the great recipe.
We loved these Green Beans! They were quick and easy to make and very crunchy. I am not a fan of pimentos, so left those out. Did add the almonds. Great!
