This is really a bean casserole. The mustard gives the cheese sauce a little bite. This recipe is a family favorite made at every holiday or Sunday dinner.

Continue stirring until cheese is melted.

  • Place 1/2 the beans in a medium baking dish. Layer with 1/2 the processed cheese mixture and remaining beans. Top with remaining processed cheese mixture.

  • Melt remaining butter in a small saucepan, and mix in bread crumbs. Top the bean and processed cheese layers with the bread crumb mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven 30 minutes, until lightly brown.

This was terrific. I followed the recipe pretty much as directed except I ball-parked the roue and the milk so I wouldn't end up with too much and instead of using processed cheese I used 1/4 cup parm and a 1/4 cup old cheddar. Wow was it ever good. Read More

As written three stars as its bland. But you can easily get it to 4 stars by simply adding a little garlic powder and parsley (or other seasoning combos you enjoy). We also up the mustard and use cheddar cheese for more flavor. I use fresh beans and boil them for about 20 minutes before adding them to recipe and they seem to be cooked just right when they come out of the oven. Read More
