Cheddar Green Beans
THIS DISH was my grandmother's way of getting us young kids to eat our green vegetables. She was a wonderful cook and inspired me to get creative in my cooking. Sunday dinner was always served at noon at her house, and everything on the table was homemade and delicious. -Linda Poole, Rainbow, Texas
