Your recipe sounds delicious! I would like to post a more diabetic friendly version that has taken our household by storm. It is very different to the
tastes of what one expects from green bean casserole, but delicious unto itself! It's very good even for non-diabetics!
2 lge cans french cut green beans, drained
1 block Philadelphia cream cheese, softened to room temp
2 lge eggs, room temp
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, may add more to your taste
salt and pepper to taste
Put cream cheese into mixing bowl, add eggs and combine till well mixed. Stir in 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, mixing well. Add drained green beans,
salt and pepper to taste and mix gently. Pour into a casserole sprayed with Pam or your favorite non-stick spray, and top with remaining cup of
shredded cheddar. Bake at 350 until cheese on top is golden and beginning to brown. When done baking, remove from oven and allow to stand for about 5
minutes before serving.
I do add more cheese than the recipe calls for, but we are huge cheese addicts in this house! I tend to nearly double it, so if you love the cheese,
get happy with it!
The cream cheese adds a certain tartness to the flavor we love, and the eggs make it fluffy, more akin to a squash casserole. In fact, I make my
squash casserole in almost the exact way, but replace the cream cheese with Mayonnaise, instead!
I miss the old fashioned casserole, like in your recipe, but this makes a suitable replacement for diabetics. We are always thinking up
"frankenfoods", and have done an amazing job at it!
