    Normaone's Note:

    We always had these beans with our Christmas dinner. They are very flavorful and a family favorite. Most of the work can be done in advance. Although there is alot of garlic, the cooking process mellows it considerably.

      Wow! Considering that neither my husband nor myself are great green bean lovers nor are we great ham lovers, we absolutely devoured this delicious recipe! We had left-over ham, and I used this as our "next" night vegetable along with Lorac's Tomato, Ham and Cheese Bake #22617, and it was just perfect. Crisping the ham and crushing the garlic was absolutely delicious with the beans and I would not change a thing. This goes in the permanent family recipe album! Thanks so very much for this delicious recipe. Dianne
