Cheddar Butter Bean Bites - delicious cheesy bites, perfect for dipping, snacking, picnics or lunches.
This was a last minute throw together that worked perfectly and is not a regular rotation for lunches.
In fact, these were not even planned, I had grabbed a tin out of the pantry thinking it was sweetcorn, didn't pay much attention opened the can only to realise it was actually butter beans.
Not wanting to waste them, I grabbed a few other ingredients I had on hand, formed them into patties, popped in the oven and voila - these Cheddar Butter Bean Bites were the result.
They were so yummy I had to go and buy some more butter beans so I could make them again.
