Make a delicious side dish with green beans and pecans – a tasty accompaniment to your dinner.

Ingredients

12
oz fresh green beans, trimmed
1/2
cup pecan halves
2
tablespoons butter (do not use margarine)
3
oz blue cheese, crumbled (3/4 cup)

Directions

  • 1 In 2-quart saucepan, place beans in 1 inch water. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 8 to 10 minutes or until beans are crisp-tender; drain. Place in serving bowl; cover to keep warm.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, cook pecans over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until nuts begin to brown, then stirring constantly until nuts are golden brown and toasted. Place in small bowl; reserve.
  • 3 In same 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Heat, stirring constantly about 6 minutes or until butter is golden brown. (Once the butter begins to brown, it browns very quickly and can bum, so use low heat and watch carefully.) Immediately remove from heat. Pour over beans; toss to coat. Sprinkle with cheese and reserved pecans.
Tips  

Strong-flavored blue cheese adds a nice tang to recipes. The longer this cheese is aged the stronger the flavor will be. Look for it in pieces that you can crumble, or buy it already crumbled. You could also use Gorgonzola or Stilton cheese instead of the blue cheese.
