Reviews for Fancy Green Beans
"These are flavorful and the entire family loved them. Since I have "gouty" menfolk, I substituted ham base for the bacon."
"I found the green beans to be a bit on the bland side. I say I would try it again but would make it spicier."
"I bet thie would also be good with snap peas. Might try that."
