    Thanks for the recipe!  The green beans at the Texas  Roadhouse are amazing! Unfortunately, I'm not much of a cook and I need a few specifics please: how large are the cans of green beans (15 oz - 32oz), approximately how many pieces of bacon and would the onion be approximately half of a medium or large onion?  Thanks, Darla Sue
