Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 35 mins
Total: 40 mins


  • 2 lb green beans, trimmed, blanched, and cooled, cut into 2-3 inches long
  • 5 rashers bacon, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 3 oz red onions, chopped
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4 tbsp all purpose flour

  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese

  1. Preheat the oven to 380 degrees F.
  2. Add the bacon pieces to a skillet over medium heat. Saute briefly, then add the garlic and onions.
  3. Continue sauteing for 3 to 5 minutes until the bacon is done but not crisp and the onions are golden brown. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  4. In a separate saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Sprinkle the flour into the pan and whisk immediately to evenly mix it into the butter.
  5. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes and then pour in the milk and heavy cream. Continue cooking for 2 minutes, whisking constantly, while the sauce thickens.
  6. Add cayenne and grated cheese. Whisk until the cheese melts.
  7. Add the bacon and onion mixture and stir to combine.
  8. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust accordingly.
  9. Add the green beans and stir gently to combine.
  10. Pour mixture into a baking dish and top with the breadcrumbs.
  11. Bake for about 15 minutes until the sauce is bubbly and the panko or breadcrumbs is golden. Serve immediately!
