We enjoyed these beans which were fast and easy! I did start the bacon/onion mixture before I added the beans to the steamer, but other wise followed the directions as written. Absolutely delicious -- thanks for sharing!

Loved these veggies! I could eat these every day. The lemon along with the bacon gives them such added flavor!
