Ingredients

About 1 lb fresh green beans

1 small sweet potato

3 oz cream cheese

About 1 cup milk of choice (I used organic skim)

1/4 cup french fried onions (optional)

1 tsp nutmeg

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions

Wash green beans and remove stems and snap in half.  Place green beans in boiling water for about 8 minutes until tender.  Drain well and place beans in an 8 x 8 casserole dish.

Peel potato, chop into chunks and place in boiling water for about 8 minutes until tender.  Drain well and return potato to pot.  Cut up cream cheese and add it to potato along with milk, nutmeg, salt and pepper.  Stir well until cheese is melted.  Blend with hand mixer until smooth.  Depending on the size of the potato, you may add extra milk to desired consistency.

Pour sauce over green beans.  Sprinkle french fried onions over top and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.  Bacon bits would be another topping option.  Enjoy!
