  1. If making these for a potluck, could I prepare the recipe in the morning, then bake it later? If not, what would you recommend for reheating the entire dish later?

  2. If taking these to a potluck, could I prepare the recipe that morning, then bake them later? If not, what you recommend for reheating the dish as a whole later?

    1. I have made these in the crockpot and used thawed frozen green beans and it came out great and didn't have to have another item in the oven at Thanksgiving.

    2. I've made these in the crockpot and they turned out great and I used thawed frozen green beans. I didn't have room in my oven with the turkey in there and then they could be dished right out of crock.

    3. I actually can't remember but I think it was on low for several hours. I'm going to cook on high today for just around an hour.

    4. I also cooked the bacon ahead in the oven so I just broke it up into the crockpot from the frig and I also cut down on the amount of sugar in half from the first time I made it by the recipe. It was way too sweet for our liking.

  3. Similar to my the "Sweet and Sour" green beans my grandparents always used to make. They added a bit of finely chopped onion cooked with the bacon.

    1. i actually made them with fresh for Easter….i used 2 lbs of fresh, they were amazing….i put them in the oven for 30 mins…we like them with a little crisp left to them…and yes they were a hit. will be making these much more often

  4. Hi Stephanie,
    I've been making this recipe for Thanksgiving dinner for a couple years now(nobody likes the traditional green bean casserole). I make the addition of dried cranberries….adds a bit of tart/sweetness. Fabulous
