Cranberry Green Beans

Not Your Everyday Green Beans

Green Beans are a staple on most Holiday tables.  You can make a green bean casserole, quick skillet green beans or just roasted green beans… OR you could make these Cranberry Green Beans.  

Not only are they Christmas ready but they are also SUPER YUMMY!

Holiday Table Ready

Holiday sides do not have to be hard to look impressive and taste even better.  

These green beans are roasted and the sauce comes together super quick in one saucepan and can be served immediately or reheated.  I love a Holiday side I can make ahead… don’t you?  

One quick note… a lot of my family are not super big cranberry fans, but once they had them in this dish, well now they are 100% pro cranberries.  Trust me this will be a hit! 

Green Bean Time!
