Bacon Smothered Green Beans

Bacon Smothered Green Beans created by Marie Nixon

Recipe comes courtesy of "Emeril Live". I watched him make these recently and just had to give them a try. Very good side dish recipe and even my 11 year old scarfed them up. Did modify the recipe to fit our tastes a bit, but did stay with all of his ingredients. Prep time includes trimming the beans, chopping the bacon, and mincing the garlic & shallots.

    Not enough taste even with bacon involved. I would not make again.

    Made this dish for Thanksgiving to rave reviews. I have made it for my picky eaters twice since then and will be making it for a Christmas pary tonite. Ths dish can get anyone to eat green beans! Thanks for posting!

    Great recipe. Very easy to make. Just one warning - I made this as a side dish with a roasted chicken so I had fresh chicken stock on hand. Do NOT use any stock that has an abundance of pepper (i.e. cayenne, paprika, etc.). It just added a weird bitter taste that I'm sure wasn't supposed to be there. Other then that, it was really good. Thanks for posting!

    I made this for Christmas dinner except that I transferred everything to a baking dish and kept it in a warm oven for about 30 minutes. It was great-thanks for sharing!
