Bed o' Beans (Green Beans)

Lauren Conforti


My husband, who is not terribly fond of string beans, made this for Christmas Dinner. These are so good! He liked them too! They're a great side dish, and they also make a nice bed for steak or lobster.

This was actually part of a recipe for lobster (that we didn't like too much), but these beans were awesome!
