  1. Cook and stir the bacon, onion, and garlic in a large skillet over medium heat until the bacon has just started to brown, about 8 minutes; mix in the balsamic vinegar, water, salt, black pepper, and green beans. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer the green beans until almost all the liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes. Stir in the bread crumbs. Remove the skillet from the heat, and sprinkle with Italian cheese blend. Adjust salt and black pepper to taste.

I made two small changes and that was cutting way back on the salt and I used fresh parmesan instead of the italian cheese blend, only because that was what I had on hand. We liked the flavor of these but found the breadcrumbs odd which made the dish unappealing. I'd like to make this recipe again, but omit the breadcrumbs, then re-review.

Very good recipe! I would suggest par boiling the green beans before adding to the mixture. Maybe it was my beans but--they were a little tough!

These were very tasty, but the breadcrumbs were a little strange to us. I may make this again, but will probably skip the breadcrumbs the next time.
