  4. Wow, Ali, do these ever look delicious. We eat a lot of canned green beans so I am always on the lookout for new ways to fix them. I have done green beans with bacon but not this way. These are so cute. Just may be part of dinner tonight, and I am adding them to my Friday Finds post on Friday. Have a great week.

  13. Did you cook the beans frozen? Or could you use fresh too?

    1. I defrosted the frozen beans in the microwave before I baked them. I don't see why you couldn't also use fresh, but I'm not sure what the cooking time would be on those. Sorry!

  14. How do you keep the beans from overcooking, while waiting on the bacon to cook?

    1. Good question. I would consider using thinly cut bacon or even pre-cooking it in the oven for a bit first. The other thing to consider is using canned vs. frozen. I think next time I would try using either canned or frozen (not defrosted) beans to see if the ystay more green.

    2. We had an early Christmas with my family. I fixed these green beans, using frozen (not thawed) & they turned out perfectly. They were loved. The bacon cooked well without overcooking the green beans. This is how I will do it from now on!

    3. Jacque- Thank you so much for your feedback! So happy to hear they turned out. I'll have to remake them sometime and take new pics where the beans are nice and green. Merry Christmas!
