Recently, I wanted to make a green bean casserole, but not wanting to bake it for the hour the recipe calls for. I made the casserole up like I'd normally do, but nuked it in the microwave till good & bubbly, while at the same time, I had my oven preheating.
After taking the casserole out of the microwave, all I had to do was sprinkle on my crushed french fried onions and place it in the hot oven, just long enough to brown. It was just as good, too! So next time, you're short on time, you don't have to rely on convenience foods!
