      I have made these a couple of times. Frozen whole green beans were just as good as fresh. This recipe is easy and very tasty!

      This was a very nice change from an ordinary green bean recipe. We will make this again.
      I sauteed the onions in butter and then added the brown sugar based on other reviews.

      WOW!!! These were AMAZING! Best beans ever. This will be how I make them from now on. But I did notice that as they started to cool the sugar started to turn to glue. Definitely best when hot. Thank you MrsEl.
