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

The green beans are gussied up with a small amount of heavy cream and some shredded cheese. If you're tired of the same old plain steamed veggies, try this recipe.


  • 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

Steps to Make It

  1. Put beans in ​a 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.

  2. Stir to blend ingredients. Sprinkle remaining cheese over green beans and dot with remaining butter.

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