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.

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.
