Recipe Friday--Beans for Days

This recipe makes a lot of beans, hence, Beans for Days. They are so good they won't really last for days unless you have absolutely no sense and make the whole thing for two people.

But. from time to time, we all need a recipe for a family reunion, potluck, or holiday meal. Wait. Have I been redundant?  I guess it depend on who you associate with.

Anyway, you can certainly cut this in half and use three cans of beans. That ought to fit in a 9X13 inch pan.

If you are  good at math, you can cut it down even more. Good luck with that. 

Beans for Days

1 number 10 can (or 6 regular size cans) French Cut Green Beans
8 oz. cream cheese
8 oz. (two sticks) butter
4 oz. shredded cheddar

Soften butter and cream cheese. Beat until light and fluffy. Stir in cheddar.

Heat beans and drain. (You want as little liquid and possible, or you are going to have one big mess.). Stir cheese mixture into hot beans. Spread in a shallow pan and run under the broiler until it browns a little bit.

Serves 25.

Note—Do not be tempted to use regular cut beans. It just isn't good.
