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 garlic powder and some red pepper flakes. I used my frozen green beans which were a little watery as opposed to store green beans so I ended up cooking them a little longer. I think the butter is unneeded in this dish with all the bacon in it. Unless you use just a couple of Tbsp and saute the onions peppers and garlic first then add the beans and bacon. The bacon also could be cut in half. Had a good flavor wasn't too spicy for us. I will probably make again. Thanks for the recipe.
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 can t imagine there s an asbestos tongue around that could tolerate that kind of heat! And in our case I omitted it altogether. I sautéed the bacon then added red and yellow bell pepper (rather than green) for color then the garlic. Once that was cooked and seasoned I added the cooked French-style green beans. I used half the amount of bacon called for and it was plenty. My four star rating is assuming that the directed amount of cayenne will not be included.
I started with fresh green beans so I blanched them while the bacon cooked to not quite crisp(I only used 3 strips.) I sautees the onions garlic and pepper until the onions were translucent then added the beans and bacon back in. Since I make my own Creole seasoning mix I added 2 tsp and omitted the cayenne salt and pepper. The butter was unnecessary doing it this way and the dish was flavorful the vegetables tender crisp. This is a nice change from our usual green beans.
Good side dish did not use the butter b/c bacon had plenty of fat used cajun spice b/c that's what I had. Many variations of spices can be used with this recipe as a base will keep subbing and inventing Thanx for the recipe
Spicy and fattening but good! I did not add the extra pepper or cayenne pepper I only used the creole seasoning (I made "Creole Seasoning Blend" from this site). It was plenty spicy. I also did not add any salt. The butter bacon onion and garlic mixture smelled heavenly while cooking! I think you could get by with decreasing the butter by half to reduce the fat in this dish.
This is a very nice side dish. I used fresh haricot verts and sauteed them in olive oil with my onion bacon and garlic then added diced red pepper (what I had on hand and I like a little color contrast) and creole seasoning. I used about 1/4 teaspoon of cayene based on the previous reviews. They were very tasty. A great side dish for summer grilling recipes.
