Coronary Casserole

Last night was cooking night, and it has brung more veggie loaf and the casserole below. We cooked up our entire delivery of vegetables, except for just a few potatoes and a couple cloves of garlic. Note to veggie-loaf lovers: this time, we roasted the veggies first, and it didn't really make a difference. So don't waste the extra time. In the delivery were some fresh green beans, so naturally we did what our white-person instincts demanded: got out the cream-of-mushroom soup.

2 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced
4 plump cloves of garlic, sliced
1-1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded (I probably used more--I just grabbed handfuls. Thus the title.)
1 cup fresh green beans, cut into 1-inch bits
1/2 cup milk
1 can condensed cream-of-mushroom soup (the cheaper the better!)

  • preheat oven to 375°.
  • Spray a medium casserole dish with nonstick spray.
  • Layer in the pan thusly: potatoes, garlic, green beans, cheese. Make about two layers.
  • Mix the milk and soup, whisking lightly until the big lumps are gone. Pour over the top of the layers.
  • Bake for about an hour, or until the potatoes are tender.
  • Serve to cheese-lovin' Spousal Unit.
  • Administer CPR.
