Green beans are plentiful year round and most people like them so we feel comfortable serving to guests. This year I am going to make them this way for Thanksgiving side dish instead of my usual green bean casserole with the soup, etc.

This recipe came from Ocean Spray believe it or not, and the pictue.

How to Make Green Beans With Toasted Almonds ~ Nice Side Dish

Step-by-Step

  1. Place 1" of water and beans in a 3 quart saucepan.
    Bring to boil on medium-high heat then reduce to medium. Cover, cook until beans are crisp-tender. Around 6-10 minutes. Drain
  2. Melt butter in heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add almonds and cook and stir until almonds are golden brown around one to two minutes.

    A member Nancy made a suggestion to cook the beans in bacon drippings and sprinkle lemon zest on them.
