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.

How can I add a ⅓ veg to these Cheddar Butter Bean Bites?

These pair really well as a side to yummy vegetable soup and there are many Soup Recipes to choose from on Slimming Eats

My favourite way to enjoy these is in a mixed salad bowl along with crisp lettuce, cucumber, beets, pickled onions and then as well as those vegetables, I also like

  • Avocado
  • Quinoa, couscous or rice
  • Salsa

Perfect in a lunch box or on a picnic too and can be eaten hot or cold - yum!!!

  1. Shevy (Slimming Eats) says

    hmmm they shouldn't of done that, did you drain them fully? As it sounds like the mixture was too wet and there is nothing in the ingredients that would cause that.

  2. Jane Maclean says

    I made these last night to have with soup at
    lunchtime and as always they tasted great !

  3. Shevy (Slimming Eats) says

    so glad you enjoyed them Jane, I love them with soup.

  4. Steph says

    Can I substitute the mustard for anything else as I really don't like the taste of mustard. Thank you in advance

  5. Shevy (Slimming Eats) says

    Hi Steph, just omit it shouldn’t make too much difference,

  6. Carol says

    I made these tonight & they smelt delicious. Unfortunately they have ended up really dry & taste almost "floury". Any ideas?
    Thank you

  7. Shevy (Slimming Eats) says

    What cheese did you use? Was it already grated stuff in a bag? If so you need to avoid using that kind of cheese as it is usually coated to prevent it from sticking together and doesn't melt as good. That is the only thing I can think of.

  8. Tony says

    Superb!
    Made them today. I wanted to eat them immediately but my wife said, "Don't even try it mate".
    She wants me to make another batch ASAP. The only thing l find hard to do is make the patties even as l had keep taking pieces of each of them to make them them an even size. Besides that, what a lovely simple recipe. Thank you.

  9. Clare Jones says

    Made these for group taster and they were a massive hit with everyone. So tasty and so easy to make. Thanks for this little treat which is so much like a cheese scone! X

  10. Becky says

    These have become a regular in my house. I have to put them in the food processor though haha you must be a mean masher. Thanks again!

  11. Lucea says

    Made the butterbean bites today, they are delish! I used parmesan instead of low fat cheddar, very tasty. Will be making these again for sure.

  12. Rachel says

    Do these freeze well? Or do they break apart when you take them out? I’m only cooking for me so I don’t want them to go to waste!

  13. Siobhan (Slimming Eats) says

    I know many have frozen these and have said they are fine, but I personally prefer them fresh.

  14. Catherine simms says

    Hi Siobhan
    Have made them for first time today.absolutly beautiful.but what's the best way to keep them for tomorrow how long do they keep?

  15. Siobhan (Slimming Eats) says

    I keep them in a tub in the fridge and warm up before serving, should keep for about 3 days.

  16. Teresa Wright says

    We’ve just made these. They smell divine and can’t wait to sample!
    I struggle with arthritic hands and used an ice cream scoop to get the right size. We made 10 and cooked for 25 minutes.

  17. Sue says

    Omgoodness! These are soooooo good.......soooooo moreish!! Will defo be making these again! My masher didn’t square up to the challenge so the food processor had to make an appearance! Only took 20 minutes in my fan oven and was a great side dish to my husbands chicken guveç. Love love love!

  18. Sandra Mullett says

    Can I use haricot beans. No butter beans until next shop

  19. Siobhan (Slimming Eats) says

    yep those should be okay

  20. Joan hogg says
