I finely found a way to get my stubborn husband to eat lima beans. Thanks for this delicious casserole. We both loved it and found the worcestershire sauce and cheese to be the key ingredients. I ended up using 1/2 cup cheese in the casserole and 1/2 cup cheese for the topping. Yummy!!
I started with the 1 lb of large raw lima beans which takes a lot more time and work then doubled the amount of other listed ingredients. Our family loved it and is definitely a keeper for future meals.
I made this last night using our frozen limas and really enjoyed the flavors. Usually I cook them with onions and garlic but I get tired of the same old limas. The left overs were great! Thanks Bergy for another tasty way to cook veggies.
Disappointed :( My family LOVES lima beans. I think the other flavors took away from the lima bean flavor, perhaps this is why the lima bean haters liked the dish so much? I have made several of Bergy's recipes (which are wonderful), and I believe perhaps this one just wasn't suited to our tastes. I thought with all the great reviews we'd feel the same, but felt the lima's true flavor was lost in the sauce.
Yummy enough. I added some green bell pepper and used crushed townhouse crackers instead of bread crumbs. I can see myself making this again in the future. Thank you...Bergy...for your contribution to my collection of fabulous recipes. Sincerely, Sherry Belle
I made this ahead and put the breadcrumbs and butter topping on when I first made it. I only broiled it for about 6 minutes and found my entire dish was heated throughout and the breadcrumb topping was nice and crunchy! I served this as a main dish, with cornbread on the side. My boyfriend and I enjoyed it, and it was a great change from regular Lima beans. I also added extra cheese and extra breadcrumbs! Good dish!
Excellent! I am trying to get more beans in my diet and this was wonderful. I made it in a cast iron skillet- so went strait from stove top to oven.
