Delicious Baked (GIANT) Green Beans

Green beans hide as they get big enough to pick. At least mine do! Have you ever wondered what to do with those green beans that hid until they were GIANT?
I found a good crock pot baked bean recipe that cooked them into deliciousness!
Note: Don’t use green beans that are hard and dry or have a brown line down them, just the big ones.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp yeast
  • 1/2 cup+1/2 tsp sugar
  • 2 cups + 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 lb butter 2 sticks
  • 1 tbsps vegetable shortening
  • 8 egg yolks, divided
  • 8 cups bread flour
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted for brushing tops of cooked loaves

Filling for NUT ROLL

  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 lbs ground walnuts I use a food processor.
  • 8 egg whites, beaten stiff
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar For Filling: Heat milk and butter and add to ground walnuts.  Fold in beaten egg whites and vanilla.
    If the filling seems too pasty, add milk.



Instructions

  1. Put yeast and ½ tsp sugar in an 8 oz measuring
    cup.  Mix with fork and add about ¼
    cup warm milk.  Mix well until
    yeast dissolves and let rise in warm spot until it reaches the top of the cup.

  2. Heat the 2 cups of milk, butter, and shortening, in
    a saucepan.  Let cool to lukewarm.

  3. Beat 6 egg yolks and sugar together until creamy.

  4. Add the milk and egg mixture to the flour
    alternately with the yeast. I use a mixer with a dough hook for this step.

  5. Knead dough until it becomes satiny.  At this
    point, add more flour or milk as needed to reach proper consistency. Dough
    should be smooth and elastic. Cover and let rise in a warm spot for 2 hours.

  6. Divide the dough into about 8-10 balls, approximately
    the size of baseballs.

  7. Roll each ball into a large rectangle: about 12
    inches by 14 inches.

  8. Spread the filling over the dough and roll up
    jelly-roll fashion.  Fold ends over
    and pinch closed.

  9. Brush loaves with a mixture of 2 egg yolks mixed
    with 1 tablespoon water.

  10. Bake at 375º for 18-22 minutes or till done.  Remove and brush with butter.  Cool on wire racks.
