Green bean casserole is one of the hottest recipe requests for Thanksgiving. This Thanksgiving 2010, add a twist to your green beans to make this your number one dish. You can jazz it up with cheese, almonds, bacon, rice, onions, tomatoes, breadcrumb, sour cream, peppers, and even garlic and lemon can add quite a delicious taste.
Since last year I have been creating new green bean dishes. Now that my children enjoy it, I can have fun, and still make it tasty and not boring. Have you ever tried your beans mixed with tomatoes and parmesan cheese? This easy recipe is a great crowd pleaser.
How To Make Green Bean And Tomato Casserole With A Hint Of Cheese
For this recipe you will need 3 cans of beans, (make sure to drain them), 2 cans of Hunt’s Stewed tomatoes, garlic, salt, pepper, minced onion, basil seasoning, Italian breadcrumbs, butter, and parmesan cheese.
To make this is so simple. Grab a large casserole dish and place the beans, hint of salt, taste of pepper, few sprinkles of breadcrumb, tomatoes, garlic, onion, and basil into the dish. Mix it up, and then place your cheese allover. Make sure to cover it well. Now add a touch of butter on top, or Pam cooking spray. Bake for 35 minutes on 400.
In my house we use Ranch dressing on almost everything, why not give your green beans a taste of ranch? Here’s how.
How To Make Green Bean And Ranch Casserole
This recipe is fun, and kids will love them. You can either bake the beans in the oven or deep fry them. My love is to deep fry the green beans, the taste is phenomenal.
Place the beans into a pot of water. Allow the water to come to a rapid boil. Then rinse them off in cold water.
Prepare your seasoning, flour and egg wash like you would chicken. Roll in flour, then egg, then seasoning and breadcrumb. I like to use garlic powder, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper seasoning, and minced onion.
Make sure the deep fryer is hot, and cook the beans for about 1-3 minutes until they appear crispy brown.
Allow them to cool off and prepare the ranch. Pour some ranch dressing into a bowl. Then add some bacon bits, and cheese. Mix this up, and pour over the green beans.
Making green bean casseroles can be quite fun, because you can add so many different foods to accommodate the beans such as hamburger meat, pork chops, chicken, mushrooms, onions, eggs, bacon, corn, barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, mustards, and all types of cheeses.
