    The Spice Guru's Note:

    My late paternal grandmother's recipe for green beans au gratin is a family favorite. Recipe may be halved and baked in slightly less time in an 8 x 8 baking dish (remember to use exactly half of all listed ingredients!).

    2. 2
      INTO a 3 quart heavy-bottomed pot over medium-low heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil; ADD the chopped bacon, onion, mushrooms, minced parsley, minced garlic, SAUTE until onions have softened and mushrooms deepen in color.
    3. 3
      ADD green beens; STIR in celery salt and fresh ground pepper; COVER and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until green beans are crisp-tender and slightly lighter in color.
