Partaking in the festivities that horsemen and their families put on, I've tasted the best down-home cooking you could imagine. And I have always loved the Country Style Green Beans that many would serve up at cookouts. But, I had never asked for the recipes. So after being away from the horses, I was craving the Country Style Green Beans and came up with a recipe that consisted of frying the bacon. It was fantastic. However, after awhile, I wanted to make it healthier for my family, and so years ago, I revised it to this, even better, version. My family's most requested! Hope you enjoy it!

    This smells amazing when it is baking. And I have also used this recipe by replacing the green beans with thawed out Brussels sprouts which is equally amazing.
