      Very yummy!! Taste old-fashioned, that is for sure! Very simple and very tasty! Did add some onion for personal taste.

      This is a good recipe. But I would have like to have more taste of bacon. Instead of adding butter at the end, it could be great to add bacon grease (yeah I know more fat but more flavour). I used seasoning salt (without sodium). I didn't let them cook 1 hour. Maybe 30 minutes. Thanks Puppitypup. Made for Beverage tag.

      This is a delicious way to serve green beans! I used frozen green beans and they were very easy and very flavorful. I will be making them again.
