Green Beans with Shallot Butter

These are another holiday favorite in my home. They are very flavorful and are sure to get even the kids in your house to eat their greens :) 


3 lbs green beans
1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2/3 cup thinly sliced shallots (we've used green onions when we couldn't find shallots and they work great as well)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped


In a small skillet, melt 1/4 cup of the butter with olive oil over medium heat.
Add shallots and cook for 7-9 minutes over low heat, stirring occasionally, until tender.
Stir in remaining butter, salt and pepper and remove from heat.
Cook green beans uncovered in a large pot of boiling water 5-7 minutes or until crisp-tender.
Drain well and transfer to a serving bowl.
Add shallot butter and parsley and toss to coat.
Garnish with toasted almonds if desired, and serve.
