 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Shelled lima beans
  • Salt
  • 3 Hard-boiled eggs; sliced
  • 1/4 c Butter
  • 6 tb Wholewheat flour
  • 2 c Milk
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tb Fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 c Grated cheddar cheese


Cook the beans in boiling salted water until just tender; drain. Place
half the beans in a greased ovenproof dish and place the eggs on top. Cover
with the remaining beans.

Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter in a pan, stir in the flour and cook
gently, stiring, to make a roux. Remove from the heat and gradually add
the milk, stirring. Return to the heat and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring,
until thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Pour the sauce over the beans and sprinkle on the breadcrumbs and cheese.
Dot with the remaining butter, place in a preheated hot oven (435F) and
cook for 15 minutes until golden brown.
