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

"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."

"Excellent! Made them when my fam came over and everyone loved them. Make extra - everyone will want seconds. I might decrease the Worcestershire next time - although my DH like them as is LOL - cooks preference I say! :)"

"This is my very favorite green bean recipe. I steam rather than boil the beans, but the sweet-savory flavor of the sauce is just delicious."
