This is one of those "this might be good" type recipes. I tried it out and have been making it ever since. If you would like you could also add garlic and/or onion power for a little more flavor. Its also yummy as a dip. Recipe is easily doubled or tripled for large groups although I warn you, as you can see, I approximated the measurements.
- 1 (15 ounce) can French style green beans, drained
- 2 (10 1/4 ounce) cans water-packed artichoke hearts, drained
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1⁄2-3⁄4 cup parmesan cheese
- breadcrumbs, enough to bind together (about a cup?)
- 1 (4 ounce) can French-fried onions
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Combine all ingredients except french fried onions in a casserole dish and mix well.
- (I usually do this with my hands so that the choke hearts get blended in well.) Top with onions and dot with butter.
- Cover and bake in a 400F oven for 15 minutes.
- Uncover and continue to bake for 15-20 minutes longer (or until onions start to brown).
At the request of the chef I reviewed the amounts of the ingredients and came up with the following: 1 can French beans or 3/4 lb fresh, frenched beans 2 14 oz cans Artichoke hearts 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated 1/2 cup bread crumbs 2 tbsp butter 4 cloves garlic, crushed 1 can French's Fried Onions Salt & pepper to taste Followed the steps except for the fried onions I did not add them until the final 15 minutes. This is a very tasty recipe with a different veggie combination. Easy to put together and great flavor.. The recipe had more bread crumbs in it than I used. I think this would be very tasty but I wanted to cut back on the crumbs and Olive oil. Thanks Kari for a lovely addition to my cookbook. This is a 5 star recipe but because of the changes I made to it I rated it a 4 star.
I followed Bergy's quantities for this recipe so I can't give it a 5 but it is delicious and I will usee it again. I do agree with Bergy that it is a 5.
I love the idea of mixing artichokes with green bean casserole! I made this recipe for my Christmas Eve dinner when I found out that twice as many people were coming and I didn't have enough food prepared. This is quick and easy and tasted great! I didn't have any breadcrumbs so I mixed in a little cram of mushroom soup to keep it glued, but I will definitely try again with the bread crumbs. Nice play on the traditional casserole! =)
