Quick And Easy Green Bean Casserole Recipe

Quick And Easy Green Bean Casserole Recipe

If you’ve ever sat down to a full-scale Thanksgiving dinner, chances are you’re already familiar with one of its most famous side dishes: green bean casserole. As standard on the Thanksgiving table as cranberry sauce or even the turkey itself, green bean casserole has been pleasing holiday palates since it was first published in 1955 by the Campbell’s Soup Company. Seeing as it’s a holiday staple, it would be easy to have the mistaken impression that creating this casserole is difficult or lengthy to prepare. Surprisingly, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, these beans can be put together in minutes, making it an easy — and healthy — weeknight side dish. Watch the short clip from Betty Crocker or follow the steps shown below to make your casserole!

Green Bean Casserole: Fast Facts

  • It’s healthy. Canned green beans weigh in at only 40 calories per cup, are high in fiber and Vitamins A and C.
  • It’s creamy without the calories. By using low fat, or healthy varieties of cream of mushroom soup, it only adds 70 calories to the entire dish. Use skimmed milk to continue to keep the calories in check.
  • It’s crazily quick. You can have this dish made and in the oven in under 10 minutes. Just bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and it’s on the table.
  • It’s leftover friendly. Made too much? Simply portion out and freeze for a quick weeknight side in the future.

You Will Need:

  • 1 1/2-quart casserole or glass baking dish
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup (use a healthy version if you are counting calories)
  • 1/4 milk (use skimmed if you would like to cut calories)
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 cans green beans, drained
  • 1 small can french fried onions

          8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

          We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

          On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

          Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

          1. Smart Door Locks

          A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

          2. Smart Kitchen Tools

          Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

          3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

          If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

          4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

          5. Nest Thermostat

          This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.
