This deliciously different way to dress up green beans is sure to become a family favorite at your house, too. The garlic, chopped ham and onion blend so well with the beans. It's a beautiful and tasty side dish that has real country appeal. -Linda Gaido, New Brighton, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 28, 2013

Very good. Very easy. My husband liked it. My grandchildren might even like it! The ham was a nice compliment. I might use less butter next time - not that I don't like the butter, just cutting out some fat and calories from a delicious fresh vegetable dish.

I make this every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. I think it is delicious and I am not a big fan of green beans so that definitely says something!
