Grown-Up Green Bean Casserole


1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed and washed

2 Tbsp unsalted butter

8 oz mushrooms, chopped

1 tsp salt, plus more for cooking green beans

½ tsp pepper

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/8 tsp nutmeg

2 Tbsp all-purpose flour

1 cup chicken broth

1 cup cream

1 cup French’s fried onions


Pre-heat oven to 400.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and season well with salt. Blanch green beans for 5 minutes and immediately remove to a cold bowl of water to stop the cooking. Drain after a minute or two and set aside.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, salt, pepper and cook until mushrooms begin to sweat.

Add garlic and nutmeg and continue to cook for an additional 2 minutes.

Sprinkle the entire mixture with flour and stir until evenly distributed.

Add the broth and allow to simmer for a minute. Add cream and cook on low until mixture thickens (~ 5 minutes).

Remove from the heat and place in a casserole dish. Mix in ½ cup of the fried onions.

Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and garnish top of casserole with the additional ½ cup onions.

Bake for an additional 5 minutes until sides are bubbly and onions are golden brown.
