Reviews for Country Green Beans
"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."
"easy and fast, great flavor, my favorite green bean recipe."
