1 cup finely chopped jarred roasted red bell peppers
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Place French fried onions, Japanese breadcrumbs, and chopped pecans in an even layer in a 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted, stirring after 5 minutes.
Prepare Buttermilk White Sauce and Simple Blanched Green Beans as directed. (Do not plunge beans into ice water.) Gently toss together green beans and roasted red bell peppers, and spoon onto a serving platter. Top with Buttermilk White Sauce, and sprinkle with toasted pecan mixture.
I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. I've never been a huge fan of Green Bean Casserole but this one was so great with the crunch of the panko, pecans and french fried onions. Many people gave me compliments. I did not add the red peppers (Since i'm not a big fan) and I don't know that it made a difference. Still great!
