IN THE SOUTH, we call a dish like this "comfort food". We serve it with corn bread, and they go great together.
I make this as a side dish with any of my favorite entrees. It's so simple to prepare I can serve it up in no time.

It's hard to improve on the taste Mother Nature gives to fresh green beans, but Mom has for years using this recipe. I have always thought the crunchy almonds were a super addition.

A touch of lemon juice gives a fresh taste to this simple side dish from Ruth Andrewson of Leavenworth, Washington. "Slivered almonds look so pretty with the French-style green beans, and they add a tasty crunch, too," she notes.
THIS DISH was my grandmother's way of getting us young kids to eat our green vegetables. She was a wonderful cook and inspired me to get creative in my cooking.
Sunday dinner was always served at noon at her house, and everything on the table was homemade and delicious.

Crushed crackers and french-fried onions create this fast and flavorful topping for this home-style corn and green bean casserole from Dorothy Bahlmann. "It's a terrific dish to take to potluck dinners," remarks the Clarksville, Iowa cook.
After I picked my first green beans one year, I desired a savory dish that was unique, quick, and packed with flavor. I had all the ingredients in my pantry and began to experiment. The results were outrageously YUMMY! I couldn’t stop eating my creation, so the next day I picked more beans and made this delicious side dish again. It's a keeper.—Merry Graham, Newhall, California
