Easy Peasy Sauteed Green Beans with Garlic


I've had a frozen package of green beans from Trader Joe's for a couple of months now. I love veggies, but sometimes I get stumped on how to prepare them. I felt like I needed to incorporate some green into my dinner last night, so I came up with a saute.

These were so delicious! I saved the leftovers and they were great warmed up for lunch. These are awesome for Thanksgiving if you don't care for the traditional green bean casserole. I'd also like to recommend the world's BEST cranberry sauce and my heavenly Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cake.

Sauteed Green Beans with Garlic

1 lb package frozen green beans
1/2 small yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced (or 1 if you don't like a lot of garlic)
2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup Italian breadcrumbs
salt and pepper to taste

Thaw green beans until no longer frozen, or microwave according to package directions. Melt butter and olive oil on medium high heat. Add onions and saute until yellowed. Add garlic and breadcrumbs and whisk around, breaking up clumps. Quickly dump in package of green beans and toss to coat. Add salt and pepper to taste. You're done!




  1. These are the BEST green beans I've ever had!!

  2. what else is pictured with the green beans , looks yummy?

  3. I think that's chicken with pesto, veggies and cheese :)

  4. is there a recipe for the chicken with pesto that you could share?

  5. I just grilled the chicken breast and sauteed mushrooms, spinach and tomatoes in olive oil, S&P. Then I used a store bought pesto I spread over the chicken and sprinkled on mozzarella cheese and broiled in oven until the cheese melted. Then I topped with the sauteed veggies and served.


I read each and every comment and love to hear what you have to say. Thanks for checking out my blog. :-)
