    Honey-Almond Green Bean Honey-Almond Green Bean

    A touch of sweetness is all it takes to make these green beans a little less ordinary.

    Prep: 15 min - Cook: 20 min

    2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
    1 tablespoon honey
    2 pounds green beans
    2 tablespoons sliced almonds, if desired

    1. Mix butter and honey; set aside.

    2. Heat 1 inch water (salted if desired) to boiling in 4-quart Dutch oven. Add green beans. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Boil uncovered 5 minutes. Cover and boil 5 to 10 minutes longer or until crisp-tender; drain.

    3. Toss beans and honey mixture. Sprinkle with almonds.

    Time-Saver: If fresh green beans seem more work than you’ve time for, you can use two 16-ounce bags of frozen cut green beans or French-style green beans. Cook as directed on the bag, then toss with the butter-honey mixture and sprinkle with almonds.
