      Wonderful combination of flavors! I didn't have shallots, so I used a red onion instead.

      An AMAZING side dish. It is as tasty as it is gorgeous on the plate! Delicious, quick & easy! The shallot butter can be made the day ahead and reheated. I bought my green beans in a steamer bag. I served at Thanksgiving and will make again & again. My GF passed this along to me. Glad to see it here! Thanks GaylaJ!

      Yum! Even my grandkids loved them! I prepped and cooked the greenbeans the day before. Just sauted the beans in a large skillet with a little butter to rewarm them as the shallots were cooking. Time-saver when having company.
