"This is a super quick recipe that uses fresh French green beans but would work equally well with frozen. The recipe was printed in Betty Crocker Thansgiving booklet, November 2005. The recipe calls for butter. Please do not sub margarine! The original recipe called for dried marjoram leaves. Not having those I used Penzeys Bouquet Garni with rewarding results."

"I used fresh small round beans and they were delicious. Fast & easy with a light lemon twist. Made for Aus/NZ swap July 2011 :)"
"These French cut green beans were so good. Made as directed and really enjoyed by DH and I. The butter and lemon zest took this lovely dish to a new level. Thanks Paula for another great side dish. Made for the Dining Daredevils team for ZWT5 Family Picks."
"THese were wonderful beans. Quick to cook in the micro and the lemony herbed burnt butter was a wonderful addition. Probably not an addition to your everyday meal. A great side to serve for an extra special dinner. We servied with recipe#320129 using fresh salmon steaks. Photo also being posted"
"These are pretty good, I wasn't that thrilled with the marjoram in the beans, but I liked the lemon butter. Reviewed for ZWT3"
"I love green beans and these did not disappoint! Very easy and I loved the flavor. Made for Zaar World Tour III."
"A nice twist on buttered green beans. I added a little lemon juice along with the lemon rind. Also used Italian herbs rather than marjoram, but only because that was what I had on hand. Thanks for posting. Made for Zaar World Tour 2007."
"I thought the presentation looked great. But the flavor really wasn't there. Next time I will double the zest & Marjoram so it won't taste so much like green beans and butter. Which I really like. "
"What a wonderful way to dress up frozen green beans! I loved the marjoram and lemon together. Also used more salt. It was great; thanks!"
"Wow, everybody loved this!! A fabulous way to dress up green beans. Thanks, Paula!"
"These were really good and super fast to make. I did use frozen french cut green beans as there were no fresh ones available. I loved the simple flavors of this veggie dish. It is a perfect accompaniment to so many things!!! Thanks Paula!"
"I steamd the green beans. I melted the butter in the microwave and then added the remaining ingredients. I used dried lavender instead of marjoram. It was great. Wonderful taste. Thanks Paula :) Made for ZWT8 for Diners, Winers and Chives"
"The lemon-herb butter was really delicious. This would have been perfect with fish. Made for ZWT8 for The Fearless."
"Yum! These were really quick and good. I love how much flavor zest can add to a dish. Thanks Paula for sharing. Made for ZWT8 - Australia."
"I used regular green beans, this was a very easily made and really nice side-dish. I enjoyed the butter and lemon zest, yum!! Thank you Paula, it was made for ZWT 8."
