“This is a recipe that my mother has made for years. It is a *wonderful* alternative to the traditional green bean casserole. It has made a regular appearance at the holiday dinner table for years!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. While bacon is frying, measure out the water and add the chicken bouillon cubes to the water.
  3. Prepare green beans according to package directions setting the almonds aside.
