 Before going in the oven

This side dish is a great company casserole and looks as good as it tastes!  Most times plain green beans will do, but occasionally I like to dress them up!  We all need a good green bean casserole in our low-carb arsenal of recipes.

4 cups cooked green beans (1 L)
1/cup onion, diced (60 mL)
4 oz cream cheese, softened (125 g)
2 tbsp whipping cream (30 mL)
2 tbsp mayonnaise (30 mL)
1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese (250 mL)
1/cup pork rind dust (60 mL)
1 tbsp butter, melted (15 mL)

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

In 2-qt (2 L) casserole dish, place cooked green beans and onion.

Sauce:  In food processor or blender, process cream cheese, whipping cream and mayonnaise.

Pour sauce over vegetables and toss gently to combine.  Sprinkle with Monterey Jack cheese.

Topping:  In small bowl, combine pork rind dust and melted butter.  Sprinkle over the casserole.

Bake in preheated oven 30 minutes.
