My husband put the bag of green beans in the wine cooler and we left for the weekend, so I didn't have a choice but to make the whole bag. Hereʻs my favorite use of the 2 lb. bag of haricot verts from Costco:
2 lbs haricort verts (young green beans)
4 T. butter
2-3 cloves garlic
1/2 cup chopped almonds
My pan can only fit one batch at a time, so melt 2 T butter with almonds until almonds are brown, then cook beans and garlic until just done and still crisp. Make next batch.
