I am looking for a good recipe for green beans for easter dinner. I don't want to just make green bean casserole...that's so boring. but the other half doesn't like to eat green veggies, so nothing too bizarre. this is the first dinner i'm making with both our parents together.....gotta have something amazing.

this is my favorite green bean recipe i make for my family :) you can use as much as you like of beans and potatoes.

1 can italian style green beans

1 can sliced (or diced) new potatoes

1/4c butter

1/4c Italian dressing


salt & pepper

cajun seasoning (optional)

cook beans and potatoes in butter on low, covered, until butter is gone. be sure to stir frequently. while stirring, add desired amount of garlic powder, salt and pepper, and cajun seasoning.

once the butter is gone, add in the italian dressing and cook covered on low for about 15 minutes. add more seasonings if desired during this time.

total time is about 30 minutes.

I know you do not want green bean casserole, but here is our version of green bean casserole...

              1 stick of butter( or margarine)

               1 pk philly cream cheese

               1 box cheese nips (crushed)

               5 cans of whole cut green beans (drained)

               1 lg can cream of mushroom soup

                salt and pepper to taste

   In a pot on the stove mix butter, cream cheese, and soup mix well and heat .

   remove from heat.

  Into this mixture add about  1/2 of the box of crushed cheese nips and mix well.

  pour this mixture over the  drained green beans carefully mix all together .            ( being careful not to break up the green beans).in a roaster size pan.

  pour the remaining crushed cheese nips over the top

  bake @ 350 until heated through
