Today I have a spin off of the original Green Bean Casserole.  While the traditional version is fabulous, especially on a holiday {hello Easter!}, it is always a good idea to change things up.  I have to admit that I hadn’t thought much about Green Bean Casserole until about a month ago when we were invited to a friends house for dinner.  They served it with tri-tip and it was SO good.  Of course, I couldn’t leave well enough alone and so I decided to come home and try to make a more spring like version.  Friends, it was a great idea because this Frozen Vegetable Casserole is delicious.

The best part about it is that you can really customize it with whatever frozen vegetables you like or have on hand.  I stayed with French’s French Fried Onions because you just can’t mess with some ingredients.  However I did, add Parmesan cheese and it was a such a great addition.

Making Frozen Vegetable Casserole

The vegetables I chose were a bag of broccoli and cauliflower, along with a bag of Country Vegetables.  I liked that there was still green beans in there but look at all of the other colors.

Combining sour cream with the cream of mushroom soup gives it extra flavor.  I also added 3/4 of the jar of Fried Onions to the vegetables.  Having them both inside the casserole and on top is extra wonderful.

A hearty layer of Parmesan cheese over the vegetable layer.

Followed by the rest of the Fried Onions and it is ready to bake.  

Look at that golden color!!  That not only means texture but it also means added flavor.

Now I am not bad mouthing good ol’ Green Bean Casserole but I have to admit that this Frozen Vegetable variety is my new favorite.  I also have a feeling that it will be yours too.  Crunchy, creamy and full of vegetables it is a great side dish to serve with any meal.
