I promise you that you will love these; I can't get enough of them.
A friend of mine made this at one of our get togethers, and now it is the way to make green beans for me. Not very diet friendly but every once and awhile you have to just splurge.
Everyone thought they were fresh out of the garden... I PROMISE YOU WILL LOVE THEM

How to Make Perked up Green Beans
