Need a solid side for Christmas dinner?


3 (9-ounce) packages frozen French-style green beans
2 tablespoons butter
1 (10 -ounce) can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon dried onion flakes (or chips)
1 (8-ounce) can water chestnuts, drained and sliced
teaspoon garlic salt
teaspoon black pepper
1 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 (2 -ounce) package slivered almonds

Cook green beans according to package directions, drain. Melt butter in a Dutch oven (or large pan); add soup and cream cheese. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until cream cheese is melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat; stir in green beans, onion flakes, water chestnuts, garlic salt, pepper, and shredded Cheddar cheese.
Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 1 3/4-quart casserole. Top with almonds; sprinkle with paprika. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.
Yield: 8 servings

Merry Christmas!
