These were pretty good. Made to the recipe with the exception of the creole seasoning. I was ready to put it in when I found I didn't have any! So added some paprika, basil, oregano, thyme, garl...

These were really pretty darned good and a far cry from plain old cooked frozen green beans. GREAT way to doctor them up, but I can’t imagine using the amount of cayenne pepper called for. I c...

I consider this recipe a treat because of the bacon. It is very good and is a good substitute for the typical green bean casserole at Thanksgiving. It worked well with the Turducken this year.
