Easter is almost here and normally for us that means a big family meal filled with ham, potatoes and green beans. Fresh green beans are a little scarce up here in the north right now, but finding frozen whole green beans is pretty easy. Sometime I throw them in the pan frozen, while other times I will take the time to thaw them out a bit before cooking them. It all kind of depends on whether or not I remembered to get them out of the freezer before dinner time.
This is one of my family's most favorite way to eat green beans, In fact the only thing that might make them tastier is some bacon, because bacon always makes everything better.
So now I'm curious...what's on your Easter menu?
Garlic & Thyme Green Beans
1 lb. whole green beans (ends trimmed)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. dried thyme
salt & pepper to taste
In a skillet large enough to hold all your beans, heat the skillet over medium heat with a little olive oil. Add the beans to the skillet. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Cook the beans on medium/medium high heat until the beans have some color on them. When you start to see some color, add the garlic, thyme and another nice pinch of salt.
Take off the heat once the garlic is golden brown, but not burned.
Check seasoning and add a touch more salt and pepper if desired.
