I was a little worried about the sweetness, however there was nothing to worry about. The brown sugar mixture enhances the beans and bacon making each bite a real treat.

Everyone said this was the BOMB!!!!! Definitely a great twist on green beans. I used applewood smoked bacon, it really complimented the brown sugar, butter and garlic mixture. I also added a little crushed red pepper, just for a little kick. Will be making this again!

This was both super yummy and uber easy win-win! I made this after I couldn't find a critical ingredient for another dish to take to a dinner and games party. So it was very last-minute. I had pre-cooked the bacon for the other dish, which I'm glad I did. Not sure it could have cooked to a crispy point in the oven on top of the beans. I, too, was a little worried about the sweetness but the garlic powder helps mitigate it. Bottom line, I was disappointed when they ran out before I was able to get seconds. Guess I'll have to make it again ;)

These were delicious! If you live at altitude like I do give these an extra 10 minutes at 375 degrees to get them just right. Also, you can easily adjust the butter/brown sugar amounts to your own taste. The recipe as listed may be a little sweet for some people, but not for me. I'm a sugar fiend. Just cut back on the amount of brown sugar and butter you use if they are too sweet for you.

Remarkably easy to make but taste like you spent hours preparing a fancy recipe. A new favorite in our house!

This was good. I used fresh green beans (because they needed used up) and microwaved them for approx. 5 minutes. Then made the casserole as suggested (except I forgot the bacon until half way through, so I microwaved my bacon until it was half cooked, and added it on top of the beans in the oven). This was enjoyable; my husband quite liked it and I thought it was pretty good, considering I don't like cooked green beans as a rule.

I did it in the sauté pan and it was still delicious.
