    Another recipe from The Creative Gardener's Cookbook that I can't wait to try. It suggests serving this with steak or roast beef and potatoes.

      Very good. We did not have any fresh savory so I used a bit of thyme instead. Hubby loved the bacon with the beans. I also had a bit of trouble wrapping the beans with the bacon so I just cut it up and cooked them together. Probably someone with better fine motor skills could figure it out. Very tasty though!! thanks for a yummy recipe!

      These were great -- though I wonder if you could just add bacon pieces to the skillet with the green beans and stir fry the whole thing, rather than wrapping them up. Think I will try that next time. Thanks! :)
