Tonight I used one of our delicious Honeycrisp apples to make some Apple Sandwiches. Always perfect for the fall!
To with them, I used some frozen green beans to make this quick and tasty side dish. The recipe doesn't say how long the green beans should cook for. It took ours about 10-15 minutes to cook through properly. It might be quicker with fresh green beans, but I don't know. We thought this was very yummy. I would make it again.
