Ingredients
  • CRISPY ONION TOPPING:
  • 1/2 small onion thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • oil for frying
  • GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE:
  • 1-1 1/2 pounds frozen green beans thawed and drained
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 8 oz baby portabella mushrooms chopped or sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 large cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup half and half
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl combine the flour, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper for the crispy onions and set aside. Place onions in milk to soak and set aside. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large oven safe skillet melt the butter over medium high heat. Add in the mushrooms and onion and cook until lightly browned (about 3-5 minutes). Stir in the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds. Now take the reserved flour mixture and remove 3 tablespoons from it and sprinkle over the mushrooms. Set remaining flour mixture aside for the onions. Stir in the flour then while stirring slowly pour in the broth and half and half. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened. Stir in green beans then bake for 15 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
  3. CRISPY ONION TOPPING:
  4. This can be made a day in advance or while the casserole is baking.
  5. Heat a small pot of oil for frying the onions in over medium to medium high heat.
  6. Take onions out of milk and coat in remaining flour mixture a little at a time. Carefully fry in hot oil a few at a time taking care not to crown the pan. Fry until lightly golden and drain on paper towel.
  7. When casserole is done baking top with your crispy fried onions and serve immediately.
