These green beans are creamy and cheesy, and they make a fabulous side dish for any meal. They're super easy, too! 


  • 4 cups cooked green beans
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • dash cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut in small pieces
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream


Put beans in shallow buttered baking dish. Sprinkle with salt, cayenne pepper, and 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese; dot with half of the butter then pour cream over all. Stir to blend ingredients. Sprinkle remaining cheese over green beans and dot with remaining butter.

Bake at 400° for 20 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. 

Serves 6.
