I was a little hesitant when I first tried this recipe. My sons usually don't care for green beans, and I thought they wouldn't be fond of the blue cheese. To my pleasant surprise, they loved every bite.

"I'm always looking for new ways to prepare green beans because it's one of the few vegetables my husband likes. This recipe is very delicious! It's a simple recipe using a very easy yet flavorful sauce. I used real bacon bits to garnish this, just to save a step and it worked out very well. Not only did hubby love it, so did the kids! The only thing I would change next time is double the sauce. It didn't seem to make enough for our liking."
