This was a great way to eat up the green beans in the freezer! I did add a bit of garlic..I like garlic. My DH sprinkled some hot pepper flakes on his serving and gave it a thumbs up. thanks.
I took a chance and made this dish for the first time for a dinner party. The guests ranged from a little picky to more adventurous when it comes to food, but we all agreed that this was a winner. I really love the cheesy, creamy sauce with a kick, and the bacon adds a nice flavor. Definitely a great alternative to the standard green bean casserole with cream of mushroom that everyone brings to pitch-ins around here. Next time I need to bring a dish, I know what I'm making! Made for PAC Spring 2010.
This dish has a bold flavor. You need to have 2 or 3 bites to decide if it is what you will enjoy. It went well with our pork dinner.
