  • Use brown sugar for carmelizing the onions for better results. My family loved these green beans.

  • These beans were delicious. I don't usually like green beans, but I really enjoyed these. The onions really gave them a good flavor.

  • This dish could be healthier by omitting the sugar. The sugar is not needed in order to 'carmelize' onions. The natural sugars in onions do it on their when sauteed like this.
