"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." — CRFTYREE

I made these for Thanksgiving this year. The only thing I changed is I used fresh green beans instead of frozen. Everyone loved them!
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 expected 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.
Served this Thanksgiving and everyone wanted recipe. Loved it.
I loved this recipe! This was cut in half (for 5 instead of 10), substituted a handful of dried mushrooms (on hand) for fresh, reduced the onion to 1/4 cup, and substituted
1/2 shredded colby/jack cheese (on hand). The flavors of the bacon & onion, and cheese with the green beans was awesome!
This is a good holiday dish. I used fresh green beans and they tasted great but took a long time to prepare.
Family really liked, but too many flavors for me.
Great!! The only change I made was using velveeta block cheese instead of jarred cheese. This dish was wonderful.
