Deep South Eats: Almond Green Beans

Do any of you know of a side dish that was enjoyed on a regular basis in your home growing up? If I had to name the one that we ate the most often and enjoyed the most often, it would be Almond Green Beans. These are so simple to throw together that they can be enjoyed with a variety of entrees during the busy week, but are pretty in appearance making them great for company. I hope you will add them to your weekly line-up and find that they kick your meals up a notch.

  • 1 can whole green beans (we also sub in french-style green beans from time to time)
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Heat beans in their juice in small saucepan over medium heat.
  • In a small skillet over medium heat, melt the butter or margarine. Cook the almonds slowly until browned. Remove from heat.
  • Add salt and lemon juice to almond mixture.
  • Drain beans and place in a serving dish.
  • Pour almond mixture over beans and serve hot.
Original Recipe from My Family's Cookbook.
Please Note: Picture above shows two recipes worth.

This would be wonderful served with Melt-in-your-Mouth Chicken!
