Recipe is delicious! Left the bacon out just because I didn't have any and I didn't miss it at all.

Yes, will definitely be making green beans like this a lot! This was sweet and crunchy -- my 3.5 year old loved them!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 11, 2011

The sauce is great and what a great way to use the abundance of garden beans this season. You know when the husband comes for a second helping of veggies then this recipe is a keeper. I fried bacon strips and crumbled to top the beans because I didn't have bacon bits on hand. Will most likely use real bacon next time as well.

This is a great recipe. My husband totally loved them and even raved the next day! I substituted peanuts instead of the almonds, and they are fantastic. This will definitely go on my fave list.
