I cooked this recipe according to the directions. I served it as a side dish along with one of the pork tenderloin recipes.

Everyone enjoyed this dish. Next time I will cut back on the sugar and see how it tastes. I used fresh green beans instead of frozen.

This recipe was a hit at my 2008 Thanksging meal and has been requested again this year.

Just tried this recipe and its great! It was a great compliment to my baked ham! I used fresh green beans. Will make this again!
