Creamed Green Beans and Potatoes Recipe
  • Peel potatoes and cut into large cubes. Boil until tender when poked with a fork. Do not overcook.
  • Trim beans into 1 to 1 1/2-inch lengths. Cook until just tender but still having a little bite to them.
  • While the potatoes and beans are cooking, make up the sauce. Add the butter and flour to a small sauce pan and heat until butter is melted and flour is stirred in.
  • Add the milk, stirring constantly as it is added. Mixture may seem lumpy but as you keep stirring and cooking it the flour and butter will blend with the milk.
  • Add the chicken bouillon, salt and pepper. Continue to cook until sauce thickens and begins to boil. Once it has boiled, turn heat down.
  • Once the sauce has thicken to desired consistency, mix the sauce, beans, and potatoes altogether in one pan. Heat thoroughly and serve.
