Hey.....I'm from the South; what more can I say? We fry everything! And...we use bacon in everything! You can use fresh, or canned green beans for this recipe & you will notice the difference over just green beans. The main picture is from fresh green beans (no mushrooms that day)& the other one is from canned green beans. They taste equally as good.
