Green Bean & Corn Casserole.

I meant to post this yesterday! oops!

This recipe is great to use when you don't have a full 4 cups of green beans to cook (as per usual the usual green bean casserole recipe) OR when you'd like to add a little variety to your every day meals! It is incredibly easy to make, quick to bake and delicious to consume! 

Green Bean & Corn Casserole

2 cups cooked corn
2 cups cooked green beans
1 can cream soup (I like Cream of Mushroom)
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. soy sauce
1 1/3 cup of Fried Onions
Salt & Pepper to taste

1. Cook corn and beans according to package directions. (I cooked them both in the same pot at the same time for simplicity sake)
2. Drain corn and beans. Place into a baking dish.
3. Stir in soup, milk, soy sauce, salt, pepper and 2/3 cups of fried onions.
4. Bake for 25 minutes @ 350 (F) until the corn/bean mixture is hot and bubbly. Stir. Sprinkle with remaining fried onions. Bake another 5 minutes.

Green Bean & Corn Casserole with Fried Onions

Gooey and Delicious!

  • You can substitute Hickory Sticks for fried onions if you don't have or can't find any... I have used Hickory Sticks many many times and it always works well and tastes great!

New Years Feast.

As a tradition, my family usually gets together for a delicious steak dinner on New Year's Day however I will be missing it this year. Why you may ask? I think a little too much sparkling wine might know the answer....

Soooo.... not being prepared to be at home today, I raided the fridge, freezer and cupboards for things that could be made into tasty food to munch on all afternoon. So far, a potato fritatta is being made by Ben's mom and I will be making bruschetta, corn & green bean casserole, a ground pork & water chestnut dish as well as vodka lychee punch to top it all off! What can I say.... the hangover cure is usually more alcohol, lol...

So stay tuned for a deliciously make-shift New Years Feast!....
