Green Bean Bundles

"I fixed these for my DD and her BF last night and they loved them, as did I. They are pretty easy to put together and the flavors blend well. The presentation plated is very nice. These can also be served as appetizers, cold. Use whole green beans. Can't wait to try these with fresh blanched green beans this summer."

    These were quite easy to make and a fun way to have green beans. I do think that a few spices might kick this up a notch, will try that the next time I make them. Thanks for a great recipe.

    I've made enough of these for everybody...I'll keep the porch light on. Tagged for Everyday Is A Holiday.

    Oh wow did I love these beans! The brown sugar/onion powder was great with the ham and beans. So easy to make and quick to cook too. A great way to dress up plain canned green beans - thanks for posting!

    These were perfect for my 4 kids. I was suprised at how much I liked them. The flavor was good and ease of preparation was great!

    Nice change of pace. I used fresh blanched green beans. :)


I was one of the original members of Recipezaar that was truly a community of individuals that enjoyed each other in forums and chat rooms. I've been a member of this site since 2003. Made some tremendous friends that I still think of often. I'll continue coming here because my recipes are here and so many more that I tried over the years as a member. It's just a tad boring now and just another recipe site like all the rest. Sad.
