Green bean side dishes are always a hit at Thanksgiving Day dinner.
Green Beans with Almonds
Green beans, frozen, steam-in-bag, family-size
½ cube butter
3 to 4 garlic cloves
1 cup blanched slivered or sliced almonds
Salt to taste
For garnish: green onions, slivers of red bell pepper or dried cranberries
Place the steam-in-bag frozen green beans in the microwave and cook according to package directions. Melt the butter with the garlic cloves. Once the garlic infuses the butter (let your nose be your guide), scoop out the garlic and add the almonds and cook until toasted.
Toss the beans, almonds and butter in a serving bowl and salt to taste.
Squeeze lemon juice over the top. Garnish as desired.
