  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Layer 2 sheets of aluminum foil on a work surface to create a double sheet. Repeat with remaining foil to make a total of 4 double sheets.

  2. Place 1/4 of each of the beans on the center of each double sheet of aluminum foil, season liberally with seasoned salt. Add 3 teaspoons of butter to each bean serving and close the foil tightly to form a packet.

  3. Place foil packets on the preheated grill and cook until beans are tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from grill and carefully open the packets to let the hot steam evaporate.

Recipe Note

While grilling out, we decided to try grilling fresh green beans. After having this, we will never have green beans another way. I use my own mixture of 'silly salt' for this recipe--equal amounts of pepper, salt, onion powder, and garlic powder, but seasoned salt works as well.
