I made these on my birthday to go with some wonderful sausage gravy, biscuits, and fruit salad (with some of my favorite fruit salad add-ins including avocado, nuts, and blue cheese). I was winging it, but ended up really liking them. It was a perfect menu. Penzey's Fox Point seasoning is a blend of salt, shallots, chives, garlic, onion, and green peppercorns.
Steam trimmed fresh green beans ~40 minutes.
Melt a combo of butter and olive oil in a large skillet.
Saute the steamed beans in the fat.
Season quite generously with Penzey's Fox Point seasoning.
Serve with grated hard cheese, like a nice Parmesan.
