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 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.?

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...

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.

(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.

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..

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.

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.

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
