Green Bean Casserole Bites

These tasty little bites came about from our last meatloaf night. I had left over green bean casserole and thought it would be interesting to see if I could transform it into a different appetizer, or mini-side dish.

You can make a batch of these, freeze them, and pull them out for unexpected guests. They are crispy on the outside, with a creamy-cheesy texture on the inside. I served them with Franks Thick Original Wing and Dipping Sauce. I think ranch dressing would work well too.
