Cheesy Green Beans


"Cheese and bacon liven up plain green beans. This dish can be served immediately after preparing, but I often refrigerate it overnight to let the flavors blend together, then reheat it in a 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven until heated through."

  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble, and set aside. Reserve 1/4 cup of bacon drippings in the skillet.
  2. Place green beans and water in a medium saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 6 minutes, or until tender but crisp; drain.
  3. Place mushrooms and onion into the skillet with the reserved bacon drippings. Cook and stir over medium-high heat for 10 minutes; drain. Reserving 2 tablespoons for topping, mix the crumbled bacon into the skillet. Stir in the green beans. Season with pepper, and transfer to a 2 quart baking dish.
  4. Melt the cheese sauce in the microwave, and pour over the green bean mixture. Sprinkle with reserved bacon, and serve.

I made these for Thanksgiving this year. The only thing I changed is I used fresh green beans instead of frozen. Everyone loved them!

I couldn't get into this recipe. The bacon taste seemed to dominate the entire dish, although that could be attributed to the type of bacon I used. But the cheese sauce was most disappointing - ...

Served this Thanksgiving and everyone wanted recipe. Loved it.

I loved this recipe! This was cut in half (for 5 instead of 10), substituted a handful of dried mushrooms (on hand) for fresh, reduced the onion to 1/4 cup, and substituted 1/2 shredded colby/...

This is a good holiday dish. I used fresh green beans and they tasted great but took a long time to prepare.

Family really liked, but too many flavors for me.

Great!! The only change I made was using velveeta block cheese instead of jarred cheese. This dish was wonderful.
