They were a great addition this Thanksgiving as we celebrated with 16 of us. Everyone dove into them and the dish was empty when we got done!

Review by BocaMama

A perfect vegetable for our holiday table! I made these for Thanksgiving and we liked them so well that I made them for Christmas as well. They will now grace our table many times!


Review by StansBetterHalf

I made a double recipe for Easter dinner, really I should have made a triple recipe, next time I will because they went very fast, everyone loved the beans. Thank you!

These are so delicious and I have made them a few times and they always complete the meal in a great way. I am making them for Easter with ham and some type of potato. They go well with anything! You could sub the almonds with chopped walnuts too I think with great results!


Review by KitchenGuru

Great sides are hard to come by and I have been luck enough to find some really good ones here. These beans are so much better than plain old green beans and we love them!

Simple on ingredients and full on flavor!


Review by FoodieRanae

Delicious! My family loved having something different for a veggie and these green beans were awesome! It was the perfect selection to have with roast beef and garlic and onion mashed potatoes with bread sticks to round out the meal.
