      These were great. I did opt for some butter, but left out the bacon... next time I'll add in some veggie bacon b/c I am sure that will make them even better!

      A delicious fix for frozen vegetables. Both the beans and pearl onions were frozen. I cooked them in the microwave for 1/2 the recommended time then added to the pan with a touch of olive oil and completed the cooking process. Finely diced Canadian bacon was used for the diced ham.

      Yummy is right! Used everything fresh from the garden and a bit of bacon instead of the olive oil and butter. Only change I'll make next time is to double it.
