    I have fixed these several times, and I always get compliments on them. My son always wants to finish them off, so I never have leftovers unless he's not at that particular meal. If you have finicky eaters, try asking them to help you make the beans. They can help crumble the bacon, stir the sugar and vinegar together, etc. Or you can give them a fun name like Greta's Great Green Beans or Grandma's Scrumptious Green Beens. Kids will usually try fun foods or foods they help create.
