Green bean Casserole

Mar 28, 2016 by

Saw this Green Bean Casserole recipe on food network good eats and just had to make it, instead of the can of mushroom soup recipe. I am trying to stay away from the can goods and buy the fresh stuff. Not to say that this is a healthy dish, but it can be if you leave the half and half out and just use broth ;).

Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp kosher salt or sea salt
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, rinsed, and trimmed
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 12 ounces mushrooms
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • french frech fried onions
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Bring a gallon of water and 2 tablespoons of salt to a boil. Clean and cut the ends of the beans.  Add the beans to the boiling water and blanch for 5 minutes. Drain in a colander.
  2. Melt the butter in a 12-inch cast iron skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms begin to give up some of their liquid, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and nutmeg and continue to cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and stir to combine. Cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add the broth and simmer for 1 minute. Decrease the heat to medium-low and add the half-and-half. Cook until the mixture thickens, stirring occasionally, approximately 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in ¼ of the onions and all of the green beans. Top with onions. Place into the oven and bake until bubbly, approximately 15 minutes.

But for the holiday's I'd rater make this version except change the onion recipe these onions did not come out "crispy" I either have to make my own fried onions or use French's fried onions.
