My husband wants desperately for me to patent and sell this recipe to a canner, but I want to share it with you! It is a huge hit at Thanksgiving and Christmas in place of the standard green bean casserole.

My daughter in law and daughter can't have dairy so I was looking for an alternative to the traditional green bean dish. I made it with chicken broth and added an extra piece of bacon. This was a huge hit! They asked me to make it on Saturday nights when we do fried chicken. Read More

I cut back the brown sugar a little bit but would cut in half in the future since it was just a little too sweet for us. This well could be just a personal taste preference since we seem to like food less sweet these days. I bought a bottle of the McCormick Vegetable Seasoning just for this recipe and I can see using it a lot on steamed veggies which often can use a little flavor boost. This was a very good side dish to a baked Christmas ham and I would make again. Dana P thanks for sharing your recipe! Read More

Very tasty way to make green beans. I only used a tablespoon of brown sugar otherwise followed it to T and it was delicious. Bought the vegetable seasoning just for this recipe and it was worth it will try it on other veggies. Always look ohm for a way to eat more veggies and I've never really enjoyed green beans until i made them this way! Thanks for the recipe! Read More
