"I prepared this for Thanksgiving dinner in place of the traditional but heavy green bean casserole. It has a delicious, faintly sweet flavor."

First, I had to change the recipe because I forgot to buy bacon. I had to substitute pepperoni for the bacon, which wasn't awful, but the bacon would have been much better in my opinion. I thought the sauce was very nice, but would have been better with a touch of white wine or a splash of vinegar to balance the sweetness of the cider. I didn't think it was too sweet though. I did not use the microwave to prepare this dish. I steamed fresh beans until tender and then added them to the onions and sauce. I'll make this again with bacon!
