My BFF, Patty, gave me this recipe. It was her mom's (aka Queenie's) signature veggie dish - hence the name.
It's so yummy and it's nice enough for a holiday table and easy enough for during the week.
And let's face it....is there anything better than a recipe handed down from our mom?
Well, Patty's mom is no longer with us, but she lives on for all of us through her string beans. ;-)
Here's to you, Mrs. B!!!!!!

How to Make Queenie's String Beans

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook the string beans until they are tender/crisp. I just microwave them in a corning with a little water.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet and add the chopped onions. Cook until translucent - about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the breadcrumbs to the onion/butter mixture and stir.
  4. Add the cooked string beans to the skillet and toss. Add salt and pepper to taste, but be careful if you're using canned string beans because salt may have already been added.
  5. Enjoy and give a toast to Queenie!
