Home-Style Green Beans

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. -Nancy Reichert, Thomasville, Georgia

    We had these delicious beans tonight and we loved them. They are super simple to prepare and so good. Tip: I used my kitchen shears to snip off the ends of the beans. Definitely worth 5-stars. I highly recommend this recipe. Volunteer Field Editor
