I made green beans with dinner on Friday night. Last night, we had Friday night's leftovers, but made fresh green beans, leaving the mushy leftovers in the fridge. Now I have leftovers from TWO nights- plenty of food total, but not in a very appetizing form. None of us really like the texture of overcooked green beans.

Is there some way I can make this into a casserole or a tasty side dish?

Before I knew about BTD I ate like an O, and I would mix overcooked vegetables with ground meat and seasonings - I really liked it.  You could even form it into patties and make meat/veggie burgers.

I would be wary of cooking thode beans any more lol.

how about a nice bit of (frozen) cod, white rice and the greens beans mixed together.

i had that tonight (freshly cooked- to be fair) and it was lovely.

Yeah, cream soup.  Throw them into the blender with liquid and add to other soup-makings.  Or add to some cooked dry beans.

You make bean soup almost daily...  Just throw them into the soup when it is about done, or if you want to do it incognito, blend them first so they aren't recognizable and they will just provide "body" to the broth...

Ah, but I can't  throw them in my daily bean soup  because these green beans have been served with meat, and I can't guarantee that some meat drippings haven't gotten mixed in. I always make my bean soups in a dairy pot .

I can't see how I could possibly make a compliant cream soup/crunchy onion ring type casserole that my kids would actually eat.

Mixing them in with ground beef to make burgers, meatballs, or meatloaf could definitely work. I was planning to make burgers tonight, so I might do that. Then again, burgers (beef and spices, nothing else) is something my son is likely to actually eat, so maybe I shouldn't mess with a good thing.

I wonder if green bean latkes would work? Mash them up, add eggs and spices, then fry in olive oil. Does that sound too weird to anybody? Should I bake the mixture instead of frying it into patties?

I think this might work, but i wouldn't fry it; i think it would end up with a weird texture.

I'm planning to do something with it for tonight's dinner. I'm leaning towards green bean kugel at this point (add eggs and spices and bake.)
