Go with traditional name

Maybe you’ve heard that Campbells cream of …you fill in the flavor…soup has been banned from my pantry. That means I’m not using cream of mushroom soup in my Green Bean Casserole. In fact, I was Green Beanstempted to name this dish ‘Green Beans with Mushrooms and Cream Sauce’ or ‘Green Beans and Crispy Onions with Mushrooms’ or ‘Fresh Green Beans and Onion with Mushrooms’. These sound a little auspicious and since most people know it by the traditional name, I settled on “Green Bean Casserole”. If you’ve been using canned beans and soup, can I lure you into experimenting with fresh green beans and mushrooms for Thanksgiving this year?

Prep Time: 15 Minutes | Cook Time: 45 Minutes | Yield: 6 Servings | Level: Moderate

beans, mushrooms, onions1 lb fresh green beans, stem ends snipped and diagonal cut in thirds
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp butter
1/2 medium onion, very finely diced
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
8 oz cremini or button mushrooms, sliced
1 tsp dijon mustard
2 Tbsp flour
1 cup chicken stock
3/4 cup half & half
1 3.5 oz pkg Crispy Onions

Special Equipment – medium pot, 9-inch cast iron or oven proof skillet, medium bowl with ice water,

1 Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Green Beans in ice2 Bring to boil 2 quarts of water and 2 tablespoons of salt in a medium pot on medium high heat. Add green beans and cook for 5 minutes. Drain and quickly plunge in a ice water bath with 1 tablespoon salt to stop cooking and preserve bright green color.

3 Meanwhile, heat olive oil and butter in a 9-inch cast iron or oven proof skillet. Add onion and sauté until they begin to caramelize, about 10-12 minutes. Add garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, nutmeg and cook for 1 minute.

Mushrooms and Onions4 Add mushrooms and sauté for 8-10 minutes until softened. Stir in dijon mustard, then flour.

5 Slowly stir in the chicken stock and bring to a boil to thicken the sauce. Stir in half & half.

add green beans6 Drain green beans and add to the skillet stirring to combine. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Garnish with crispy onions in the center or cover the entire dish.

If you don’t have an oven proof skillet, pour the bean mixture into a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish to bake.

finely diced onionsCut the onions very fine so they will caramelize in 10 minutes or so.


Cremini are also called baby portabello mushrooms.

For Thanksgiving make this dish the day before, except don’t bake it. Chill in the fridge overnight. On Thanksgiving day, let stand on the counter at room temperature for about 45 minutes. Preheat the oven and bake as directed.

Frequently served on Thanksgiving but could be served with meatloaf, roast chicken or any other main dish you love with green beans.
