These were okay. I found them to be too wet - too much tomatoe - they dulled down the bacon and onion. I think I will try Ree's other green bean recipe next time. This just didn't do it for my family. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Made these tonight for my husband. We both loved them! Used maple & hickory smoked bacon.....gave the green beans such a lovely, smokey flavor. I will definitely make these again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
