Cheesy Green Beans

Click to enlarge

I threw together a green bean dish that came out pretty tasty.  It has gone on to be one of the more popular recipes on my blog, in fact.  I put some mushrooms in this dish (which are visible in my photo above).  However I feel they got lost in the other flavors so I’ll omit those in future and in the ingredient listing below. This dish is Induction friendly.   Throw in some cooked ground beef or cooked chicken and it becomes a COMPLETE MEAL! 🙂
