Green bean casserole is a favorite on holiday tables. Topping the dish with a savory stuffing mix adds seasonal flavor.
Vegetable cooking spray
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup skim milk
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded reduced-sodium, reduced-fat Swiss cheese
1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 (9-ounce) packages frozen French-style green beans, thawed and drained
1 1/2 cups herb-seasoned stuffing mix
2 teaspoons margarine, melted
1 egg white, lightly beaten
How to Make It
Coat a medium saucepan with cooking spray, and place over medium heat until hot. Add onion; saute 5 minutes or until tender. Add flour, and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add the milk, stirring until blended. Stir in cheese, sour cream, sugar, and salt; cook 5 minutes or until thickened and bubbly, stirring constantly.
Place green beans in an 8-inch square baking dish; pour the sauce over beans. Combine stuffing mix, margarine, and egg white in a bowl; stir well, and sprinkle over green bean mixture. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
my go-to for thanksgiving - i swap fried onions for the stuffing (minus the egg wash). It was popular with even with picky eaters who scowl at the mention of Swiss cheese. I could see how it considered be a little bland without a little extra seasoning or topping.
Good recipe. Needs only minor tweaks in my opinion.
I used fresh green beans rather than frozen.
As CookingCari said, more cheese is always good. In my opinion, seems that a cheddar would work just as well as the Swiss.
Also, I mixed the whole egg with stuffing rather than just egg white. Didn't think it would make much difference (and it didn't). Agree with other reviewers that it needs a little more seasoning. I added black pepper, garlic powder, and a little cayenne pepper. Nice!
Since I am from Wisconsin, I like to add MORE cheese!!! Also before I add the sauce to the beans in the pan I like to sprinkle mushrooms over the beans. Gives it a little more flavor! Very delicious recipe, my family said they will never eat a better green bean casserole again, now I am obligated to take it to all our family outings! :)
With the reviews before, i knew i needed to add something to this recipe to make it work!
I added cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes and garlic powder. I also crushed half of the bag of stuffing before adding into the mix
