This dish will remind you a bit of the often-served green bean casserole of Thanksgiving, but with far more flavor. If you can’t stand that particular recipe, please don’t turn up your nose at this dish. Everyone I have served it to has swooned over the richness and the flavors. You will too!
When you make this recipe, you might want to double it so you have some very welcome leftovers. Oh yes, and you will probably eat up the scrapings from the bottom of the serving bowl. Don’t be embarrassed. You will not be the first to do so. Is this “green bean heaven”? Absolutely!
This recipe is a showcase for fresh green beans, though frozen green beans are acceptable. Don’t even bother if the beans are canned. I admit a bias here, a heavy one. Go with the fresh fillet-type beans and you can’t miss with this recipe.
One of my favorite ways to enjoy these beans is over top of half a baked potato that has been split open and lightly buttered. This is not diet food, of course but it is the most splendid of comfort foods.
