    This is a really nice way to dress up canned green beans. I used 3 slices of real bacon, crumbled. The only thing I might do differently, is to take them out after 4 minutes because my green beans started to shrivel a bit. Thank you for a keeper of a recipe!

    Yummy. I halved the recipe and used real bacon instead of bits. Simple and good. Thanks Texaspollock for sharing. Made for Cookbook Tag.

    We really enjoyed these. I used onion powder instead of minced onions as I didn't have any. I just shook on the powder, I didn't measure it. We all really liked these. I did let them simmer on the stove instead of putting them in the microwave. These will be made again as we love green beans. I loved that they were quick and easy to make and they were full of flavor.

    Quick, easy and flavorful.<br/>I had a little trouble rating this Quick and easy 5 stars all the way. Taste wise i would normally put this recipe at a high 4 stars. I used Betty Crooker BacOs instead of the Hormel and found the smoke/bacon taste to be a little on chemically side. <br/>I went with five because of the quick and easy preperation and the Bacos may have influenced the flavor. Definitely a recipe to make when time and ease is needed.<br/>Thank you for posting
