  1. The nutrition information is right in the middle of the recipe when I go to print it out, making a one page recipe into 2. How do I get rid of the nutrition informaiton?


  1. Everyone liked. Very easy to make. Cooked fresh beans about 4 hours on high.
  2. These were very good. I used some frozen green beans from my garden. I followed the recipe and was a bit concerned because it smelled so sweet. I shouldn't have doubted after 4 hours in the crockpot the beans came out delicious. Everyone was pleasantly suprised. Thanks for an interesting and tasty dish.
  3. This is really yummy! I followed the recipe as directed except I used left over bacon from breakfast, so sauteed my onions in 1 tablespoon of butter. Just delicious! Thank you for posting! Made for It's Not Easy Being Green 2009.
  4. What a wonderful surprise! I really wasn't sold on the idea that Green Beans can be paired with BBQ and taste great. What got me was the key phrase of you toddler eating it, so I HAD to try; and what a fantastic surprise! My kid can't get over the color green yet, but I love it! The best part, it's simplicity and it didn't take me the 20 minutes at all to prep. I chopped the onions and bacon together put them in the skillet. Meanwhile, I washed my beans (I used 2lbs fresh) put them in my crock pot along with my katsup and Brown sugar. I was done was before my bacon and onions were! No time at all. For the fresh green beans I actually had to cook them 4 hours on high. Thanks so much for posting!
