This is our Thanksgiving side dish staple but it would go great with chicken or salmon. One of the great things about this recipe is that you can cook the green beans ahead of time and make the sauce at the last minute which usually helps with those holiday meals! This is a family recipe that originally came from my Aunt in SoCal. UPDATE: after reading reviews, I've increased the amount of chicken broth to make more of the yummy sauce. Thanks for the great feedback!

Usually I don't really like dishes made with Dijon Mustard. But this recipe doesn't taste only that. With the bacons and green onions, it gives a lot of flavours. I didn't use garlic. And no need to use salt. It was enough salty and my bacon was 8 % sodium. Very delicious. Even my baby of 2 years and a half ate what I gave him. Thanks WildLime :) Made for PAC Spring 2008

This is very quick and easy, and a new favorite at our house! I don't know what I did to the proportions, but I ended up having to add a couple tablespoons of white wine to keep it liquid. Still yummy! Thanks for sharing!
