Dijon mustard, honey and lemon juice add sparkle to this yummy side dish.
Updated Nov 11, 2008

Ingredients

  • 1 pound green beans, cut into 1- to 1 1/2- inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (15 to 16 ounces) great northern or navy beans, rinsed and drained

Steps

  • 1
    Heat 1 inch water (salted if desired) to boiling in 3-quart saucepan. Add green beans. Boil uncovered 6 to 8 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain.
  • 2
    Stir in remaining ingredients. Cook over medium heat about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until hot.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Reduce fat by more than 2 grams per serving when you use 1 tablespoon of butter instead of 2.
  • tip 2
    Keep prep time down by using a 16-bag package frozen cut green beans instead of the fresh. Cook as directed on package.
