Crumb Green Beans|
Recipe submitted by Georgia.
"This is a neat way my mother used to 'fancy up' the green beans. So I thought I'd share it. This will become a family favorite, especially for those who don't like green beans. Makes them very palatable!!!"
2 cans green beans
1/4 pound of saltines, (crushed)
1/2 stick margarine
Place the green beans in a saucepan along with some pepper and garlic salt to heat through with the lid on. In the meantime, melt the margarine in a frying pan and add the crushed cracker crumbs to it. On medium high heat...Stir the crumbs lightly and toss and continue to mix so they do not burn. You want them to lightly brown and crunch up. When this is done, turn off the heat and remove pan from the burner. Now that the beans are cooked through and heated well, drain the fluid from them. Place the green beans in the serving bowl and sprinkle the buttered crumbs on top of the and lightly toss. DO NOT COVER and DO NOT put crumbs on until right before you are ready to eat. They will get soggy, and that's not what you want to do...
