This was delicious! I needed a super fast last minute side dish and I had canned green beans. This recipe dressed them up and made them not only edible but really good! I won't shun canned green beans anymore as being a decent side dish!

My son's first grade class had an "Alphabet Feast", and he wanted to bring a green bean dish (honestly I had no idea he knew what a green bean was). I was faced with a dilemma: How to get first graders to want to eat vegetables? The only plausible solution was to candy them. That is what brought me to this recipe.

I took an immediate liking to this recipe (what's not to like, there's bacon, butter, and brown sugar?). It was a success. I think only one child other than mine ate it (be realistic, we're talking green beans here). But she did go back for seconds, and there were none left. The parents and teachers had eaten them all.
