  1. Wow! This dish is wonderful -- beats green bean casserole any day of the week. DH loved this dish and so did I. Can't wait to try it on Company or take it to a pot luck -- I know it will be a hit. Served it with a rotisserie chicken and some corn, but it would be great with brisket or just about any meat dish. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag, September, 2013.
  2. A caterer we use has green beans like this but she would not reveal a secret family ingredient. This recipe is as close as I've found and is now our family favorite!
  3. This is absolutely amazingly good. I would never had thought about putting barbecue sauce on green beans and now my not be able to eat them any other way. They are like eating little bites of candy. To try to trim some of the calories I did use Splenda brown sugar and although the bacon is a major ingredient in this recipe I will probably cut that in half. (or maybe not) I used French style frozen beans but I think next time I'll use the whole green bean. Thank you so much for sharing this fantastic recipe. Made for PRMR
