    How to reheat green beans:

    I don’t remember the last time I had any green bean leftovers. But if you do find yourself in that position, OR if you wanted to make this recipe ahead of time, all you need to reheat these green beans is some extra butter.

    In a large skillet, melt about 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Once melted, add your green beans and cook over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes, or until warmed through.
