Yesterday I gave you that delicious and simple recipe for Smothered Green Beans (Go on, have a look, I’ll wait.). Today I'm going to do something that may shock and even appall you. Don't be afraid! This is really delicious, and a wonderful way to use up leftover vegetables. During the Boxing Day Brunch, my cousin told me that she had read somewhere on the Internet (she didn't quite remember where) that leftover green bean casserole is excellent in a grilled cheese sandwich. I didn't make green bean casserole, but my green beans with their slight sweetness and wonderful bacon addition sounded like they would be perfect on a sandwich. This was not my first foray into using vegetables on a sandwich; I first tried it out here with great success.
So, I put together a grilled cheese sandwich using grated cheese and the Smothered Green Beans, sandwiching them in between layers of the cheese. I grilled it up in my Copper Chef Pan (Heavens, but these are wonderful! I'm going to be telling you about this in the near future.), and it was absolutely delicious. The kids are sure to run from a sandwich like this, but adults are probably going to like it a great deal. It's truly a wonderful way to use up leftovers, a painless way in which to get your daily servings of vegetables, and provides you with an excellent and hearty lunch. Feel free to experiment with any vegetables that you have left over. Give it a try, and let me know what you think.
