Au Gratin Potatoes with Smoked Ham and Lima Beans

Rhonda E!


I came up with this recipe when I bought the wrong kind of beans at the store. I wanted butter beans and I bought lima beans and the taste is just not the same. So I had no use for the lima beans and did not like the taste until this recipe. I also did not have any cheddar cheese on hand so I used what I had and it came out great with the white cheeses and the two slices of yellow cheese I did have made a nice topping. I hope you will enjoy my recipe!
