Lightened Up Green Bean Casserole

December 21, 2009

I made this on Thanksgiving, and it was quite the hit. Fresh green beans, shallots and panko breadcrumbs take ordinary Green Bean Casserole to a new level. It’s perfect for Christmas and anytime of the year. No one will believe it’s so low in fat.

Lightened-Up Green Bean Casserole

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 40 minutes
Yield: 6 servings
4 cups cooked, cut green beans
2 shallots, finely chopped
2 teaspoons olive oil
2/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 (103/4-ounce) can reduced fat cream of mushrooms soup
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup French onions
1. Steam green beans over the stove or in the microwave until crisp-tender; drain and set aside.

2. Cook shallots in hot oil in small skillet 2 minutes or until browned.

3. Stir together beans, shallots, breadcrumbs, soup, milk, cheese, in a lightly greased 11/2-quart casserole dish.

4. Bake at 350F for 25 minute or unti mixture is hot and bubbly. Stir and sprinkle with onions. Bake 5 minutes more or until onions are golden brown.

Note: 2 packages (9 ounces each) frozen green beans may be substituted for fresh.
