Arkansas Green Beans

Green beans are a popular side dish for dinner at our home. Sometimes you need to jazz up an old standby to make it seem more appealing. We love this version of green beans. They are sweet, salty, and so easy to make. This can be done in a crock pot, but this time I baked them in the oven. I hope that you enjoy them too!
