Baked String Beans

Frozen string beans from our garden (or the grocery store) taste great in this side dish. Bouillon, garlic salt and crisp bacon give them a nice fresh flavor.—Shirley Leister, West Chester, Pennsylvania

    New family favorite! I also added the cubed potato to the bottom of the pan.

    Absolutely delicious. Lots of flavor that makes for a perfect side. I added a cubed potato. And I used vegetable stock. VFE

    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!

    I made this using fresh string beans and 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt. It was good, but it needed more seasoning.

    This was a fabulous and easy way to make beans and bacon! The bullion added a good flavor, too.
