“A nice way to spice up green beans. Good, but not for the kids! Be careful of adding extra salt due to the sodium content of some of the ingredients.”

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.

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
