This famous favorite is usually loaded with fat, mostly from the canned french-fried onions.  Here's a version which tastes almost the same, is lower in fat and calories and cheaper, too.  Go ahead-  fix it for the holidays.  They won't know it's a low fat healthy choice!

Green Bean Casserole Healthy Style

1 lb. frozen or fresh green beans
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup, regular or reduced fat
3/4 cup reduced-fat or skim milk
black pepper to taste
1 recipe Frazzled Onions made with 1 very large or two medium onions
   (click on link above for recipe)

Preheat oven to 400░ F.

If using fresh green beans, wash, trim and cut as you prefer.  Frozen green beans can be whole, regular cut or French style.   Add a little water and cook, covered, in the microwave (or by whatever method you prefer) until barely tender and still nicely green.  I prefer to steam them.

While green beans are cooking, prepare the Frazzled Onions.

Combine the soup, milk and black pepper in an 8 x 8 baking dish.   Add well-drained green beans and half the Frazzled Onions and mix gently. 

Bake 10 minutes and stir. 

Top with the rest of the onions, and bake 5 minutes more or until hot and onions are golden brown.
