Green Bean Casserole

I love green bean casserole as a side. I found this recipe for a fresh home made version online (I forget where) and thought I would share it. It tastes great and is easy to make. If you use fat free milk, it is about 86 calories per serving.

• 1 package (16 oz) frozen green beans (or 1 lb fresh rinsed and trimmed green beans)
• 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
• 1 garlic clove, minced
• 1 tsp butter
• 1/2 lb fresh mushrooms, chopped
• 1 can (12 oz) fat free evaporated milk
• 1/4 cup all purpose flour
• 1/2 cup milk
• 1 tsp soy sauce
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1/4 tsp poultry seasoning
• 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper

• 2 cups sliced onions
• 1 tsp butter
• 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs

1. Cook beans until tender and drain
2. Preheat oven to 375
3. In a large nonstick skillet, cook onion and garlic in the butter until tender (about 4 minutes), then add mushrooms and cook intil softened.
4. Reduce heat to medium-low , gradually stir in evaporated milk.
5. Combine flour and milk and mix until smooth, then gradually stir into mushroom mixture.
6. Add the soy sauce, salt, poultry seasoning, and pepper. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened (about 2 minutes).
7. Stir in beans and transfer to a 2 quart greased baking dish
8. Bake uncovered for 15 minutes

1. While the casserole is baking, cook onions in butter in a small, nonstick skillet over medium-low heat until golden brown
2. Add bread crumbs and cook until dry and golden brown
3. Sprinkle over casserole at the end of the 15 minutes, and bake for about 7-10 minutes, until the topping is browned.
4. Let stand for 10 minutes then serve
