“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.” - by CRFTYREE
Original recipe yields 10 servings
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Melt the cheese sauce in the microwave, and pour over the green bean mixture. Sprinkle with reserved bacon, and serve.

"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 - I expe..." See morected the mixture to be coated in the creamy sauce, but instead all the cheese settled at the bottom of the serving dish. I happened to mention that the recipe was called "Cheesy Green Beans" and my husband said, "They had cheese in them?" Won't be trying this again."
