shredded mozzarella cheese
2 (9 ounce) packages
frozen green beans, thawed
seasoned bread crumbs
I really enjoyed this dish, however a bit more moisture is recommended for the bread crumb topping. I'm not sure if it was the elevation, but I had to used two eggs beaten in order for the bread crumbs to be moist enough not to fade into sawdust in the oven. I also substituted a cheddar and monterey jack mixture for the mozzarella as I like a little bite. I also sprinkled paprika and fresh ground black pepper on top of the cheese mixture, and grated fresh romano before applying the bread crumbs for a bit more spice.
Maybe this is a great recipe if you use frozen green beans, but I think it's practically inedible! A friend of mine picked green beans from her garden so I wanted to find a good side dish recipe. The cheesy sauce is wonderful, but the beans are like leather, impossible to chew. I don't know if they got that way from being baked in the oven or if they were too ripe, not ripe enough, etc. At least the rest of it tastes good!
I made this a while ago and I don't really remember it. It wasn't bad, but of course, it wasn't stellar. The top part was the best b/c of the crunchy, baked topping though.
Yummy and easy to make. I didn't have mozzarella, so I used parmesan and used soy mozzarella. Everyone at the potluck loved it and asked for the recipe.
We thought it was Great! My husband went back for seconds!
I will probably use only 1 cup of breadcrumbs the next time I make it.
I made this for a potluck and I increased the cheese to 1 1/2 cups as another review suggested. It was great while it was hot, but as it cooled the cheese solidifies (not so great). I will do again but only for home meals. Need to be served hot.
This wasn't spectacular, but it was an excellent change from plan old green beans. I've only made it once and wasn't displeased. I will definately try again and maybe season it up just a little more.
