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.

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
My mom got a garlic roaster and soon my kitchen was overflowing with heads of sweet, gooey, roasted garlic. This recipe, one of my many experiments, was a favorite of my family. The roasted garlic is mild and adds a rich, buttery taste to the beans. —Virginia Sturm, San Francisco, California
