Yum, yum, and yum. Green beans and bacon go together like peanut butter and jelly. I did add some diced sweet onion which I cooked in the bacon drippings before adding the cooked beans. Delicious!

This is an excellent recipe. I served it for Christmas dinner and everyone loved it. Next time, I may add some onion and mushrooms but it is delicious as is. I did drain off some of the grease as another reviewer suggested.

Loved this recipe! It was exactly what I was looking for. I used canned green beans and cut up the bacon before browning. I cooked the bacon and threw the beans in. The only thing I would do differently next time is to drain off most of the grease. I didn't think it was necessary and would be much healthier.
