“Recipe comes courtesy of "Emeril Live". I watched him make these recently and just had to give them a try. Very good side dish recipe and even my 11 year old scarfed them up. Did modify the recipe to fit our tastes a bit, but did stay with all of his ingredients. Prep time includes trimming the beans, chopping the bacon, and mincing the garlic & shallots.”
