If I had prepared this recipe strictly as written I'm fairly confident I would have had a problem with it. A whole 8 oz. package of mushrooms to a mere cup of green beans would be just a tad heavy on the mushrooms - unless this was a mushroom side dish and not a green bean side dish! That said, I chose to substitute fresh green beans, cooking them in simmering water for five minutes, then transferring them to an ice bath. I used a combination of butter and bacon grease to sauté my desired amount of mushrooms, onions and, at the last, the garlic, and cooked bacon - then tossed in the cooked green beans and heated them through. All of the additions - the garlic, onion, bacon, mushrooms and lemon-pepper seasoning all contributed great flavor to this unordinary green bean side dish.

I have used this recipe for years, and it is great!! Glad to see it on here. It is a easy, quick, but extremely tasty recipe. I use fresh green beans, shitake mushrooms, and shallots. Makes it a little more exotic in taste.

This is a great and easy way to fix up a simple side dish. I used French-cut canned green beans because I don't care for the texture of frozen ones. The seasoning is spot-on -- great flavor without being too much. Thanks.

Mushroom & Bacon Green Beans Haiku: "Just ONE cup of beans, would never make four servings! I used a whole bag." Yea, the main ingredient "guts" of this recipe have a ratio that's a wee bit off. I wanted 4 of us to get nice helpings of green beans alongside salmon, and one cup ain't gonna cut it, folks. Oh, and why use butter to saute the garlic, onion and mushrooms, and not the bacon grease from getting the 2 TB of crumbled bacon? (Unless --shudder-- you're using a jar of bac'o-bits?) - so I did just that, sauteed in the bacon grease, continued w/ rest of recipe, but used a 12 oz. bag of frozen green beans. The taste though - WOW. I'd give 10 stars alone for a magical mix of mushroom/bacon/bean!!

I made it for a T-bone steak dinner I prepared for our 1st anniversary. She went crazy over this and I wasn't far behind her.

YUM!! I did do a teensy bit of mods using what I had on hand, but this recipe is dynamite. Subs - canned french cut green beans drained and cooked the mushrooms, onion, and garlic in a tad of bacon grease before adding the beans and bacon pieces. I have a larger family, so I doubled the green beans and eyeballed the rest. The kids loved it and we are definitely going to add this to our regular rotation. Thank you PrncssLee!

Loved these green beans! I cut the amount of mushrooms in half and doubled the amount of green beans. super good!

Decided to try this with a pork roast tonight, and it turned out so good that my fiancee ate two servings before I had finished serving myself. Will definitely be a repeat side dish. Although I should clarify that I did use canned french style beans since I did not have any frozen ones. Everything else I followed the recipe for.
