I was in a hurry to get this in the oven so I didn't bundle my fresh green beans, just topped with the bacon. I precooked 6 slices of bacon thinking it was enough, but then realized that it was supposed to be the whole package and I did not have time to precook the rest. The precooked bacon was much better and crisp. The rest of the bacon was soggy and fatty even though I uncovered it and broiled it at the end of baking until it browned. I also used fresh green beans and boiled them for 5 minutes due to other reviews and they were quite soggy! Next time I will NOT precook the beans, but definitely will precook all the bacon. I gave this recipe 3 stars because it was swimming in grease! I don't know if I will use butter at all next time, the bacon creates enough grease. I also think that by precooking the bacon you might eliminate some of the grease. But the flavor itself was good, very sweet. I will make this again with these changes and will play around with the grease factor to see what works best when I precook all of the bacon, butter or no butter, maybe a bit of water?
