I use frozen baby limas. They have a light bleu cheese flavor with a crunchy topping.

I have had this recipe in my "TO DO" pile for ages and finally made it. I am sorry I waited so long, Delicious. The Blue cheese compliments the lima beans. I was a bit skimpy with the buttered crumbs (I cut back from the recipe ) Next time I will listen to you! Thanks Miss Annie for a great Lima Bean recipe

Fantastic. Skipped the breadcrumbs (dietary reasons) but added the chives as recommended by another chef. Love the sauce and it was so simple!

This was very tasty but I felt needed something more--I added some cracked pepper and some fresh chives which considerably brightened the dish.
