These green beans are the perfect holiday side dish! I wanted to share them with all of you, because they are easy to prepare, nutritious, and SO delicious. I love the blistered green beans with all of the crispy, fragrant garlic! If you’re looking for the perfect holiday or weeknight veggie, look no further!

What are the benefits of green beans?

The fiber content is very high in green beans! They provide some of your daily protein requirements, and they also act as an easy source for acquiring vitamins like A, C, K, B6, and folic acid.

    These green beans are EVERYTHING. They seem so simple, yet they’re freaking to die for. My husband said to make sure this recipe is saved!

    Last night was my first time to use this recipe and my husband declared these green beans his favorite. So quick and easy. Thanks, Lexi!

  3. Hi, Lexi! This recipe looks great! Would I need to do anything differently if I were using frozen green beans? Costco sells nice organic French green beans that are so convenient to have on hand when green beans are out of season. Thanks for any input!

  4. Just to to flavor profile I replace some of the butter with fresh bacon grease. Then once blistered top with crispy crumbled bacon. Have also done a mix of green beans and asparagus.
