This simple dish relies on freshly ground nutmeg. Look for whole nutmeg in the spice aisle, and store it in the freezer for up to a year.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place beans in a large saucepan of boiling water; cook 5 minutes. Drain.

Step 2

Heat butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add walnuts; sauté for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add beans, salt, and nutmeg; cook for 1 minute.

Super easy which was appreciated this Thanksgiving--and delicious! The buttery sauce makes them appealing to kids, and the walnuts adds something a little different for the adults. Definitely a keeper!

This recipe easy enough for a weeknight family dinner and also delicious and fancy enough for guests. It's known as the "yummy green beans" in our family.

Simply delicious! I steamed my vegetables rather than cook in water.

Yum. Amazing something so simple tastes so good. We tried it twice, better with pecans than walnuts. Might try toasting the pecans next time.
