Green Bean Casserole 
with
Smoked Gammon Steaks

This Green bean casserole combined with milk, fresh cream and smoked gammon steaks is a hearty and delicious treat both for lunch or supper. I love green beans, 

fresh cream sauces, smoked meat and

 casserole recipes. So when Green beans are in season and we can get our hands on a bunch of them that have been freshly picked I am always up for recipes that I can use them in. So when I came across the idea of this casserole recipe I couldn't resist.
