Green Bean & Cheesy Potato Casserole (Healthy Version)

I created this so we could have a taste of two of our favorite dishes (green bean casserole & cheesy potatoes) without the high fat & calorie guilt from eating them!

1lb bag frozen green bean pieces
1/2 bag frozen Southern Style Hashbrowns

1 1/2 cups stock (veggie or chicken)
1 1/2 cups low fat milk
1/2 cup flour
1 Tbsp Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb Seasoning
1 tsp. seasoned salt
2 Tbsp. minced onion
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Add green beans and potatoes to a 9x9" baking dish (I use this).

In a cold saucepan, combine the stock and milk. Sprinkle in flour and whisk until smooth. Place saucepan on medium-high burner. Add seasonings. Bring to a boil, whisking until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat and add cheese. Stir to combine.

Pour sauce over potatoes and beans in baking dish. Stir to incorporate the sauce.

Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until it's bubbly and golden brown.

Serve hot as a delicious comfort food side-dish.
