    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This green bean dish is absulutely delicious! Double the recipe to serve more than 6 people, or just double the recipe anyway LOL!. You can steam the beans, cover and chill up to a day in advance. Coarsley chopped pecans or walnuts can be substituted for the sliced almonds if desired.

      Kittencal has the best recipes. I made this for a family potluck and doubled the recipe. I made it as written. It was a big hit. I think the next time I make it, however, I will decrease the almonds. We ended up with most of the almonds in the bottom of the bowl.

      Great! I used only 4 tbsp of butter and would decrease it a bit more next time and increase the lemon and pepper. Loved the pairing of the almonds with the beans. Thanks for posting!

      Served these for company recently and everyone wanted the recipe! They were incredibly easy to prepare and best of all can be made hours ahead of time and then put in the microwave just before serving. Lissa
