Delicious Cheesy Lima Beans With Bacon Recipe

One of my favorite vegetables happens to be lima beans! I could eat lima beans 3 times a week and never get tired of them...plus, they are very versatile and you can make them in many different ways. One of my family's favorite lima bean recipes happens to be this delicious cheesy version. This recipe is the perfect side dish to just about any meat or fish dish.

Here is what you will need to make this recipe.

Cheesy Lima Beans with Bacon Recipe

4 slices of bacon (cooked until crisp and then crumbled)
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1 (10 ounce) pkgs. frozen lima beans
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tomato, chopped
1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
3-4 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs

Note: After you cook and crumble your bacon, you need to reserve 1 tablespoon of the bacon drippings.

In a large frying pan, saute the finely chopped onions in 1 tablespoon of bacon drippings. You will want to saute the onions until they are tender and translucent.

In a 2 quart buttered baking dish, mix the crumbled bacon, onion, lima beans, salt, ground black pepper, chopped tomatoes and the shredded cheddar cheese. Sprinkle the seasoned bread crumbs on top.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until done. (it will be hot and the cheese will all be melted).
