Pennsylvania Dutch Green Beans

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by SharleneW

Green beans that are reminiscent of a wilted spinach salad--that same sweet & sour flavor with the bacon and eggs.

Top Review by Roxygirl in Colorado

This was a super recipe. I doubled the ingredients, but had to use some Dijon instead of mustard powder. I used ready-cooked bacon for convenience, even though the regular does taste better. This had a great texture and the eggs on top are a nice touch. I served it with some leftover meatloaf parmesan and egg noodles. Roxygirl
