"Good flavor, put them in the oven with a meat and potato casserole and you will have a full oven baked meal that can cook while you do other chores!"

"I used fresh grean beans and added minced garlic instead of garlic salt. I cooked it part way and then added the bacon so it was soft. Taste was awesome!"
