"These beans are great. I have used the same recipe but substituted brussels sprouts. That is even better than the green beans. It converted Brussels sprouts haters to lovers."

"I made this recipe for Christmas last year and everyone loved it! It has just been requested for our Summer get together. I do substitute the sugar with Splenda and it works just as well."
