White Bean Casserole
Ordinary baked beans step aside. One taste of this Provence-inspired White Bean Casserole and you’ll banish canned baked beans for good. The casserole flavors canned cannellini or other white beans with onion, garlic and herbes de provence and tops them off with a crispy breadcrumb topping. The dish can be assembled ahead of time. Just sprinkle on the topping right before baking.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté until tender, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute more. Combine all of the onion mixture and remaining ingredients in a baking dish, cover with a lid or foil and bake for 1 hour.
Combine ingredients in a bowl. After casserole has baked for 1 hour, remove cover and sprinkle with topping and bake until topping is golden brown, about 5 minutes.
Makes 6-8 servings.
