Skillet Garlic Green Beans

Like most people, I’d guess, I keep a number of cans of green beans in the pantry.  Green bean casserole is a staple in our house, but I am always looking for something else to do with them.  I cribbed a recipe from and made some adjustments to fit what I had laying around.  Between the three of us, we finished it all and could have had more.  This one goes into the rotation!

Serves: 4

Cooking Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 1/2 tbs. butter
  • 3 tbs. olive oil
  • 3-5 tbs. minced garlic, according to taste
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans green beans, drained
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter with olive oil. (Substitute margarine or 1 tbs olive oil to go Lent friendly)
  2. Add garlic, and cook until lightly browned, stirring frequently.
  3. Stir in green beans, and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Cook until beans are tender, about 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. (omit cheese for Lent)
