I fixed these for my DD and her BF last night and they loved them, as did I. They are pretty easy to put together and the flavors blend well. The presentation plated is very nice. These can also be served as appetizers, cold. Use whole green beans. Can't wait to try these with fresh blanched green beans this summer.

These were quite easy to make and a fun way to have green beans. I do think that a few spices might kick this up a notch, will try that the next time I make them. Thanks for a great recipe.

Oh wow did I love these beans! The brown sugar/onion powder was great with the ham and beans. So easy to make and quick to cook too. A great way to dress up plain canned green beans - thanks for posting!
