Great side dish. I used white pearl onions and that was great too.
Balsamic-Glazed Green Beans and Pearl Onions

Not bad...I'm not a huge fan of either green beans or vinegar (husband likes both), but the syrup rendered the beans non-boring without being overpowering. I omitted the onions as the husband doesn't eat them, but may include these if I make this again. I served this alongside CL Baked Mac and Cheese (same issue), and will keep this in mind as a tolerable green bean recipe.

I don't usually like balsamic glazed veggies (too sweet), but we had all the ingredients, so I figured I'd give this a try. I used white pearl onions because that's what I had- these were fantastic and so simple! My husband ate more than half of these in one sitting, and finished them off the next day. This has become a go-to recipe for guests!

I made these for dinner tonight and served with CL Cheesy Meatloaf Minis. They were delicious. The balsamic syrup really enhances the flavor of the green beans and red pearl onions. I used steam in the bag haricots verts which saved a pot and I was surprised to actually find the red pearl onions in the grocery store. Definitely a good Thanksgiving side.

I made these for Thanksgiving dinner. They are excellent! The onions & vinegar give the green beans a nice flavor.

I made these for Thanksgiving, and they were very well received. The one thing I did differently was to cook a few pieces of bacon and cook the onions in the fat, then crumble in the bacon at the end. It was really good that way, though I'm sure I'll try them without the bacon later on when I'm not surrounded by so many picky eaters. The bacon did go really well with the vinegar though, maybe helped to cut the sweetness a bit.

Special enough to serve for company, simple enough to be a weekday dish. I've made twice so far to speck. The only change being the 2nd time was substituting white pearl onions for red due to availability and it was still delicious.
