    I make something similar once in awhile for dinner. I sliver the beans and I also add 1 egg and scramble into beans and bacon and add alot of pepper and just a dash of shoyu. Yumm!! great for bento lunch the next day too.

    Sounds delicious. Is the bacon pre-cooked, or do you add it raw?

    Is it really 12 cups?

      Marie – It does sound like a lot of green beans doesn’t it? However when you are starting with the fresh, raw green beans they will measure out to quite a few cups. But when cooked down they will be less.

    Hi- If I’m doing OAMC, how many freezer bags should I divide this into? Perhaps 2? Saw that you referred to it in the directions, bot no where else. Thanks. Love Paelp OAMC recipes :)

    Because we always have green bean casserole with Thanksgiving dinner I decided to make this recipe with brocolli instead. Oh. My. Goodness. It was so good! Everyone loved it!

    Wondering if, for the freezing preparation, it would work with frozen green beans instead of fresh. Has anyone tried it that way?
