Creamy Garlic Green Beans

I love having one of those versatile side dishes that go great with almost any meal.

But it’s also important that they can stand alone in flavor all by themselves.

These Creamy Garlic Green Beans are made the way my grandma used to prepare them and I know I’ve had similar dishes elsewhere.

In fact, they remind me of restaurant style green beans too.

This is an old recipe for sure. I know I have been enjoying it since I was a kid.

At our house, we love green beans and I roast them with olive oil and sea salt frequently. But you know sometimes you just want something that tastes a little fancier.

Like they took a little more time, but they didn’t. Something that can beef up a meal just a tad to make it something just a bit more special. 

And Creamy Garlic Green Beans are it.

This side dish literally takes very little time to prepare. It can be made with frozen, fresh or even canned green beans.

It’s all up to you and your family’s taste! And trust me, these taste like a million bucks.

Well, actually they taste more like wonderful Creamy Garlic Green Beans, but either way, they are perfect for any meal!

Doesn’t really matter how you make them, serve them or prepare them.

These are delicious with almost any meal!

We love them as a veggie with steak, salmon, chicken, pasta or spaghetti!

Just a really fresh, nice dish that goes perfect with almost anything.
