This recipe just happened by fluke to be honest, however it turned out pretty good! We made two variations. Both are good, the Jamaican spice added that extra kick it needed for sure. We also had two different textures, one is definitely thicker than the other. It really depends on your own liking.
Let me know how it goes!
Serves: 20 portions | Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 30 minutes | Cooking Temperature: 375 degrees Fahrenheit
- 3 cans of cream of mushroom ($0.67 per can)
- 2 cans of green beans ($0.87 per can)
- 2 cups of milk ($1.60)
- 4 tsp. soy sauce (can be omitted)
- 1 bag of frozen green beans ($1.98 per bag)
- 1 can mushrooms ($0.97)
- 1 can French’s fried onions ($1.92)
- 1/2 tsp. cumin
- 1/2 tsp. paprika
- 1/2 tsp. chilli powder
- 1 tbsp. Jamaican spice
- Casserole dish
If you want a thicker texture:
- Baby potatoes smashed were added to the casserole half way through, and cooked until golden ($6.98)
Total ingredient cost (excluding the spices) + 13% tax: $10.45 / 20 portions = $0.52 per portion!
Total ingredient cost for the thicker texture (excluding the spices) + 13% tax: $18.16 / 20 portions = $0.91 per portion!
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- If you are planning to make the one with a thicker texture, you can microwave 2 cups of baby potatoes for 10 minutes. Let it cool and then smash them with a fork and put aside until it is needed half way through the cooking process.
- Combine the beans, cream of mushroom soup, mushrooms, milk, soya sauce, and spices into the casserole dishes.
- Place in oven, and half way through add the potatoes for a thicker texture. If you do not want the thicker texture, in the last 10 minutes add the fried onions on top.
