Celebration Green Beans

Just in time for Christmas! This recipe is from a friend of mine, Cindy. It sounds yummy! I haven't made it yet, but when I do I may add a little more breadcrumbs & cheese.

1½ lbs. fresh green beans
2 T. oil
1 T. cider vinegar
¼ tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
¼ c. sliced onions
1 garlic clove, minced
1 T. butter
2 T. dry breadcrumbs
2 T. grated Italian cheese
Paprika (opt.)

1. Place beans in 1” of water and bring to a boil. Cover and steam 7-8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Transfer to a 2-quart baking dish coated with cooking spray.

2. Combine oil, vinegar, salt & pepper & drizzle over beans. Toss to coat; set aside.

3. In a small skillet, sauté onion. Put over beans. Sprinkle with paprika if desired.

4. Bake uncovered at 350° for 18 to 22 minutes or until topping is lightly browned. Serves 8.
