Fresh green beans real bacon and a squirt of lemon juice to taste. Added some zucchini and chopped onion because I had it to use. Sautéed chopped bacon in a skillet before adding the vegetables cooking just till fork tender while still maintaining their vibrant green color. Fresh beautiful and spring-like. Read More

I was looking for something to do with French Style green beans and stumbled upon this recipe and decided if it had 4 1/2 stars it had to be good. What I didn't realize was that only 2 other people had reviewed it. Didn't like this at all and none of my 7 or husband did either. The main taste is lemon.:P Will NOT make again. Read More

This really puts a great spin on the flavor. We will definitely be using this recipe again in the future. I used fresh bacon lightly cooked in the skillet and added a little cayenne pepper. Read More
