These were so wonderful! They smelled so good while cooking that my family couldn't wait until they were done. I used plain broth because I couldn't find garlic flavored; and just added some minced garlic to it. I've tried this with both already cooked bacon and with raw bacon I had to cook and while I think the raw bacon you cook adds a little more flavor you could do it either way and still get fantastic results. My husband also took this to work for a potluck and everyone loved it there also. Thanks for sharing. We will be making these often.

So easy to make and yummy! Doubled the recipe as I made this for a party at work. I followed the recipe as written other then I couldn't find chicken broth flavored with garlic so I just added garlic. Everyone enjoyed these. Made as a pressie for Aus/NZ swap.

This is a great recipe for green beans; I used the pre-cooked bacon also and used minced garlic which I added to 14 ounces of chicken broth and three cans of whole green beans along with the onion, no salt and a dash of pepper. Wonderful flavor, probably cook this for Thanksgiving instead of the traditional green bean casserole. Yummy !

These green beans are delish, I make them the same way except I use frozen green beans and I add small red potatoes...

I used this recipe at Thanksgiving. This recipe is so nice and easy for larger gatherings. Everyone seemed to love the beans. I used plain broth as I couldn't located garlic flavored. Thanks for posting. I will use this recipe again and again.

These green beans are wonderful! I also had to add minced garlic, since I couldn't find garlic flavored chicken broth. This recipe is so easy & so very good. I'll be making these very often!

Minus the garlic, I thought this turned out pretty good. Normally, I love garlic, but it was somewhat off-putting in this recipe. I will definitely try this recipe again without it. Also, I used frozen green beans because that's what I had on hand.
