"This is a really old recipe that I've had forever. They're simple but good. You can substitute 1 pound of asparagus for the beans if you'd like." — Jodster

I love this sauce! I make this same sauce for my pork chops!!! The only thing I do different is instead of using nutmeg, I use garlic powder :)
The amounts required are wrong! I made the sauce as written and it was too dry. It barely coated the green beans. The sauce tasted great, but I would not make it as written again. You should double the sauce recipe.
So good! I used a 12 oz package of frozen green beans that I cooked in the microwave. I did the sauce on the stove and then added the beans to that. I used half & half instead of the heavy cream. This was so creamy and tasty. Thanks!
Excellent! The sauce is amazing and would be great on lots of other veggies and maybe even meat. The nutmeg is a must! DON'T LEAVE IT OUT.
These were very good, and I will make this recipe again. I like to eat my veggies crisp-tender as the recipe states, but there isn't any "cooking" time for the beans more than you do in the water: cook them to the texture you'll enjoy. I made the sauce as-written and though the amount was good: coated but not swimming in the sauce. I was excited to go outside my spice comfort zone and use nutmeg and while my boyfriend loved it I think spicy is more my thing: will substitute for Cajun seasoning or garlic powder as another reviewer mentioned. A flexible side, thanks for sharing.
Very Good. I followed the recipe exactly. My boyfriend wishes I had made more. Will make again!
i used whole milk in place of cream and it still tasted delicious
Served this dish for Mother's Day family dinner with Slow Cooker Thanksgiving Turkey from this website. As good as the turkey and gravy were, the green beans stole the show. Used frozen haricots verts. Followed another reviewer's advice and used half & half instead of cream. Gave a generous shake of nutmeg. Glad I did, it added a subtle dimension to the dish that put it over the top.
