Default Green Bean Casserole

This recipe is a slightly tweaked version of one that was in our coupon
insert a couple of Sundays ago. I haven't made it yet, but this will
definitely be one of our Thanksgiving veggie dishes. It just sounds like
it'd be really good! The Kellogg's web site says the original recipe
contains 23 g. net carbs per serving. My version has about half of that (11
g. net carbs per serving, by my calculations). You can find the original
recipe and nutritional info at http://www.kellogs.com. The main source of
carbs in the original recipe came from the use of boxed corn flake crumbs.
I substituted crushed corn flake cereal, which made a big difference in the
carb count.

GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE

2 tablespoons margarine or butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon sugar or sugar substitute equivalent (aspartame's sweetness won't
hold up to the heat when this is baked, so it's best to use another kind,
such as Splenda)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 carton (8 oz., or 1 cup) reduced-fat sour cream
2 cans (16 oz. each, or 4 cups) French-style green beans, drained
1/2 cup corn flakes, coarsely crushed
1 tablespoon margarine or butter, melted

Melt 2 tablespoons margarine or butter in medium-size saucepan. Stir in
flour, salt, pepper, sugar, and onion. Stir in sour cream. Cook over low
heat until thickened, stirring occasionally. Fold in green beans. Pour
into 1 1/2-quart casserole coated with cooking spray.

Combine crushed corn flakes with 1 tablespoon of melted margarine or butter
and sprinkle over top.

Bake at 350F about 30 minutes or until hot.

Yield: About 6 servings
Serving size: 1/2 cup
11 net carbs per serving

Enjoy!

Pththththth! No fair, I'm at work and all my recipe books are at home.

Still, it looks pretty good :-) I'm partial to using the canned french fried
onions as a topper, though. Nostalgia and all that.

I make it almost "normally" -- frozen green beans, cream of mushroom
soup -- but instead of the batter-dipped fried onions, I go to the Asian
market and get a jar of deep fried onions. They're just fried onions,
no batter, so they are much lower carb.

LOL! All's fair in love and low-carb... :-)

I like your topping idea - it really would be closer to the traditional
green bean casserole.

I hope you're still planning on posting your version of a green bean
casserole...we need all the help we can get in expanding our recipe
repertoire without expanding our derrieres, you know! hee hee

I'm already doing my part with the weekly menu. I hope to have something
worked out in time for a "Holiday Dinner" menu, filled with
diabetic-friendly versions of old classics.

Gregory, I really appreciate your diabetic menu efforts. I'm especially
interested, not only for myself, but because there will be two other Type 2
diabetics at our Thanksgiving dinner table. I'm in control of my diabetes;
the other two are not in control of theirs, unfortunately (denial...big
time!) So I'm planning a relatively low-carb dinner to show them that it is
indeed possible for diabetics to eat well without sacrificing flavor. OK,
so we're not having mince pie, but my cheesecake will knock their socks off!
:-)

thanks for the hint about the deep fried onions. Good idea.
As always YMMV and this is JMO

I'll dig out a few things before Thanksgiving, but I won't be doing a regular
menu that week.

Look for them in the section for Thai foods, if the store is organized
geographically. The ones I got are in a shrinkwrapped 3.5 oz plastic
jar with a red lid. They say they're a product of Thailand, ingredients
95% red onion, 5% palm oil, less than 1 gram carb per 1 Tablespoon
serving, 10 servings to the jar. And they're yummy! There's fried
garlic, too. :-)

For anyone in my neck of the woods, they're in the far right-hand aisle
near the back of the Super 88 market at Packards' Corner (where Comm.
Ave. splits off from Brighton Ave.) in Boston. Top shelf, IIRC.

Sounds great.. I have an asian market not too far from me, I will check it out.
Thanks again,
