Five minute preparation at home, then into a plastic baggie for transport, and heat over an open fire!!! Yum!!! Please don't try to use frozen green beans - it just doesn't work. You can turn this dish into a complete meal by adding sliced sauteed chicken.

  • Stir in green beans and season with salt and pepper. Cover skillet with lid and cook for 3 minutes, stirring a few times so mixture doesn't burn. Transfer mixture to a shallow dish and place in refrigerator to cool. When cool, pack into a resealable bag.

  • At campsite, heat a skillet over the fire or camp stove, dump in contents of bag, and cook just until heated through.

These were very nice for a change- and a good way to spruce up canned green beans. However I would recommened cooking the onions and garlic for 3-4 minutes before adding the almonds. Then cook the almonds for 1/2 minutes before adding the greenbeans! Read More

I loved the flavors and added more garlic. I think fresh green beans would be better though. The canned green beans tend to get mushed. Read More

My family loved these green beans. My niece said these were the best green beans she'd ever eaten. Refrigerating them overnight and heating them up the next day really heightened the flavor. I'll definitely make them again. Read More

I'm always looking for recipes that are low in saturated fat. This one is great because is uses oil instead of butter and tastes great. Read More

This is a great recipe. I substituted frozen French cut green beans instead of using canned. I made this dish for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit! I will definitely make this again. Read More

Easy to make recipe although amount of garlic recommended is extremely high. Use less garlic to enhance the taste of the beans. Overall though an excellent bean variation. Read More

These were very easy to make. I used frozen reg. grn beans and had precooked them in the microwave first for about 5 mins. and then used the skillet and they were awesome. Came out very tender and the flavor is wonderful with the garlic and lovethe texture with the almonds. Very Easy to warm at campsite. Read More
