5 Stars! I dare you to say you still hate vegetables with this dish! This was perfection: the comfort of bacon, the sass of balsamic vinegar, the crunch of fresh green beans, the mood elevation from sauteed sliced potatoes. DH loved this by itself, but thought I was a genius to serve Hot Pepper Pecans as an optional garnish (the slight balsamic sweetness downplayed the outright heat of the pecans and reached a harmonious medium). I was so excited by this recipe I forgot to pick up a rotisserie chicken, so we opened a 15-1/2 oz. can of chicken and mixed it in, too -- contentment at our dinner table, let the veggies shine!
