Kevin,
All your food creation pictures make me drool. I have the same Corelle dishes and seeing your food displayed so tastily makes me want to take a bite out of the computer screen.

I just LOVE recipes with everyday items that I have on hand! This is one of them! Thanks for sharing Kevin, it looks great.

catkan 07-30-2006 09:45 AM

I am definitely filing this one in my book! Going to be 100 degrees here today, to hot to cook. But this looks good.

What an awesome side dish for a roast or some steak!! Thank you for the recipe and the picture-I love recipes with the picture!

Do you think frozen green beans and frozen caulif. would work O.K.?

Marlee 07-30-2006 12:40 PM

Woah! That looks delicious! Thank you :)

momov2boys 07-30-2006 12:42 PM

I don't see why it wouldn't as long as you thawed it 1st.
I prefer fresh myself, it always seems like it gives a dish a better flavor.

There is a total of about 36 carbs in the whole casserole based on the size of what I used. The casserole dish that I baked it in is 2 1/2 qt.

Estimating 8 nice servings of over 1 cup each that makes it approx. 4.5 carbs per serving.

Mr. Kevin..

You are amazing..Now...you make these wonderful dishes...and you are holding your weight..WOW..

Really, this looks like a great main dish..with a salad on the side..I think..

I'm wondering if I could cut down the fat a bit..by using CC milk instead of
yummy cream..I might experiment with this for a lower fat version...

pooticus 07-30-2006 04:31 PM

ah yes! a cream, butter, cheese, and bacon delivery system! bravo!!! most people only think in terms of a trifecta but u went for all annointed 4 in one dish! bravo!!!!!!! :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

(i unfortunately for my ass will be trying this next weekend with our steak :annoyed: )

thanks again kevin! :annoyed:

We had this for our dinner last night by itself. I had a double portion, but still at 9 carbs for a meal, that is a bargain. With my exercise level of 3 times a day I have been maintaining quite nicely on approx. 40 to 60 carbs a day.

Carolyn, altought I bake a lot I still have to apply portion control. I am fortunate to have a gallary of taste tester that help make certain that things don't remain around too long to tempt me. I also make and share quite a bit with my diabetic father in law who otherwise would be consuming vast amounts of high carb goodies if I didn't.

pooticus 07-30-2006 05:10 PM

(btw. i didn't mean to sound sarcastic. this sounds like one of the perfect meals to me. and i will seriously be cooking this next weekend! i'm not holding out a lot of hope for portion control...i don't do well with these types of dishes or with linda sue cuz i just want more and more...but if it keeps me honest, then it's awesome every now and again...)

i really meant kudos on the recipe. it looks soooo FINE.

CarolynF 07-31-2006 09:25 AM

Portion control is the key..Linda Sue (with her wonderful recipes) also exhibits
portion control..

Kevin..you are lucky to have people to share your experiments with..DH and
I will eat anything..DS Brett is a bit more fussy, but he might actually like
this if it involves cheese..

michelemomof2 08-01-2006 08:20 AM

Oh my! Is it lunch time yet! That picture is making me hungry! :laugh:

Thanks for this recipe, Kevin!

Freckles 08-01-2006 03:45 PM

Thanks for sharing this recipe! I made this tonight but subbed asparagus for the green beans and used 1 cup Hood's CC skim milk, 1/4 cup heavy cream, 1 egg and some butter spray. I used less cheese, but used sharp cheddar. Cooked the bacon crispy and blotted with paper towels. (I can't handle too much fat in one sitting.) It was still delicious and dh loved it. It reminded me of twice baked potatoes. I thought at first it may have been too much liquid, but after it sat for approx 10 min it was great.

Wow that sounds great. Thank you so much for sharing.

jackieba 08-03-2006 07:28 AM

Looks yummy. Thanks Kevin. I'll prob cut it in half (like I usually do--there's only two of us). I use the Hood milk as a sub in alot of recipes tha call for cream. DH loves asparagus so I'll have to try that too.

sophie44 08-05-2006 07:28 AM

bumped so my honey can find it on here...I want in tonight

doxielove 08-08-2006 02:07 PM

Save - looks so delicious - thank you Kevin!

momov2boys 08-09-2006 03:46 PM

Okay everyone: This was amazing!

I had to use sugar snap peas, because fresh green beans were gross at my grocer.

Next time, I will decrease the amount of cream called for (I used 1C this time).

Super tasty, easy and just plain fabulous.

Thanks, Kevin, for posting ;)

ediebo3 08-10-2006 03:19 PM

heavy whipping cream is what I normally use, although I do remember i didn't have whipping cream once an I used half n half and it still turned out well.
