"Made for Christmas. Very good. Everyone loved them. The only change I made eas to use vegan butter so my vegan daughter could eat them . Made them in a big pot instead of the crockpot. Will definitely make them again."

"I used 4 12 oz bags of green beans. Two French style and two regular cut. These beans were very easy and making it in the slow cooker made it very convenient for Thanksgiving. I used four cloves of fresh garlic that I saut?ed in the butter and added thin sliced almonds. Everyone liked the beans, but felt that I should have doubled the sauce. We really couldn't taste the the sauce, but there were a lot of beans to cover. I will try these again. Thank you for sharing!"

"These were wonderful! Will be making for Thanksgiving this year. Used three 16 oz. packages of frozen green beans. My store did not have french-style so used the thin extra long green beans. Great recipe to free up oven space and cooking time for the big day!"
