How to season green beans?

I was just wondering how some of you season green beans? I usually boil fatback first and then add the beans, but I wanted to try something different.

Thanks

Garlic Green Beans

I saute garlic in olive oil, then add the beans and stir. I then add 1 tsp. of dijon mustard, salt and pepper and continue sauteing until heated all the way through. It's very yummy! I hope you like it!

I saute almond slivers in butter until they are golden brown. Then I add the steamed green beans to the skillet and toss until coated.

Lemon and dill make a nice change. Or serve with a little teriyaki sauce.

I take frozen green beans and steam them.

Then, in a seperate pan I sautee' onions in a little butter or olive oil. Then when the beans are done, draing them and add the onions to the green beans. I then will take a few slices of turkey bacon and cook it in the microwave and crumble it up into the green beans.

Steamed, then sauteed in butter. You can toast almond slivers or cashew halves in the butter, then add the green beans. Delicious.

Also, you can sprinkle the sauteed green beans with a little fresh parsley and bleu cheese.

i never made greenbeans before until last week. i just tried to remember things the way i've had them before and recipes i'd previously seen but didn't try out. mine came out WONDERFUL and i'm craving them all the time now...i just don't like all that work of cutting the ends, etc.

1st- i sauteed a little bacon and crumbled it up. (i used the precooked kind and added a little olive oil)

2nd- i added a clove of finely chopped garlic and 1/2 of a finely chopped onion.

3rd- i tossed in the greenbeans, a little salt and fresh ground pepper and sauteed them for about one minute.

finally- i added some chicken broth to the pan and let the beans simmer. cook until the doneness that you prefer and that's it.

hmmm. i'm thinking i may need to make some more tonight.

This is EXACTLY how we have ours. No other way, in my opinion, to eat them.

I drain a can of french style greenbeans, then add about 1/4 cup or so of Ragu Parmasean & Mozzarella sauce. It tastes much like the traditional green bean casserole. No salt addition is necessary. So quick and easy and good!
