I’ve never been a huge fan of green beans…unless they come in casserole form.
But these, I like. I make them occasionally, as a few family members don’t like them. But other family members love them. My 6-year-old is especially partial to them, and has made them for himself for breakfast a few times. (Hey, I’m not complaining!)
These days, when we do make them, we double or triple or even quadruple the recipe. They’re that popular…with about five of us. They’re not bad reheated, either — sometimes, I pack them to take to work with me for lunch.
Best of all? They’re simple. Yet, they’re “fancy” enough to serve to guests, if you like.
Recipe Collection: Garlic Green Beans
- 1/2 lb. green beans
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp. fat (lard, bacon grease, olive oil)
- Sea salt to taste
Step 1: Put your green beans in a medium frying pan over medium heat.
Step 2: Add your garlic and oil.
Step 3: Saute until they begin to blister just a little bit.
Done! Serve alongside meatloaf, or beef and potatoes, or whatever you like. 🙂 I’m partial to chicken marsala, myself!
