Best Green Bean Casserole

November 18, 2011, 12:11 pm

Adapted from Martha Stewart
Serves 8

6 tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, diced small
1 pound white mushrooms, sliced
2 teaspoons sea salt
black pepper to taste
1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed and cut into bite-size pieces
¼ cup all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
1 pinch grated nutmeg
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 can Lars’ Own Crispy Onions*

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add onion, and saute about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms, and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 8 minutes. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and  black pepper. Set aside to cool.
  2.  
  3. Cook beans in boiling water until tender about 5 minutes. Pour into a colander and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
  4. Melt the remaining 4 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add 1/4 cup flour, and whisk constantly until mixture begins to turn golden, about 2 minutes. Pour in milk, and continue whisking until mixture has thickened, about 3 minutes. Stir in nutmeg, and the remaining teaspoon salt and additional pepper. Remove from heat, and let cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally. Mix sauce with beans in a bowl.
  5. Pour beans into a greased 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Combine Parmesan and breadcrumbs and sprinkle over casserole.
  6. Cover beans with foil and bake at 425 until heated through, about 25 minutes. Uncover, set oven to broil, and cook until top is golden brown, about 1 minute. Sprinkle fried onions over top and serve immediately.


*To make your own fried onions:

4 shallots, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch rings
1/4 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Heat canola oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Toss shallot rings with flour. Fry the shallots in batches, turning frequently, until golden brown. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
