    yields8 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup) time--- difficultyeasy

    This dish is destined to be an American classic, if it isn't already considered one. Made in a variety of ways, Cooking Light's version uses frozen, French-style green beans and a creamy sauce of shredded Swiss, milk, sour cream and onion. The beans are then topped with a prepared herb stuffing mix that bakes golden brown in the oven.


    Vegetable cooking spray
    1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1 cup skim milk
    1/2 cup (2 ounces) reduced-sodium, reduced-fat Swiss cheese, shredded
    1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Two (9 ounce) packages frozen French-style green beans, thawed and drained
    1 1/2 cups herb-seasoned stuffing mix
    2 teaspoons margarine, melted
    1 egg white, lightly beaten
