Green Bean Gratin

This post is a little late.....I made these green beans for our Christmas dinner with Rex's Mom.

For some reason Rex likes green beans so I found this recipe on www.about.com for him.

This picture shows the remainder of the ingredients, butter, blue cheese, heavy cream, and bread crumbs. Paula Deen would be proud!!

The dish just before it went in the over....and my last picture. As usual when it came out of the oven I totally forgot to grab the camera!!

The recipe:

1 1/2 #trimmed green beans

3 ounces blue cheese

1 pint heavy cream

1/2 cup bread crumbs

2 tablespoons melted butter

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Blanch the beans in salted water for 5 minutes. drain well and transfer into a lightly buttered casserole dish. Pour over the cream and crumble the blue cheese evenly on the top. Mix the breadcrumbs with the melted butter in a small bowl and sprinkle evenly over the top. Bake for 15 minutes or until browned and bubbling. Remove from the oven and let rest for 15 minutes before serving.
