INGREDIENTS
BEANS
  • 2 quarts water
  • 1 tablespoon table salt
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, ends snapped, snapped into bite-size pieces

INSTRUCTIONS
Bring the water to boil in a large pot or Dutch oven. While it comes to a boil, prep the beans. Fill a large bowl with ice water. Add the salt and beans to the boiling water. Cover and cook for 6 minutes or until crisp-tender and still bright green. Drain beans in a colander, then plunge into ice water to stop the cooking. Drain a bit in the colander again. Place a double layer of paper towels on a baking sheet, arrange green beans in single layer to dry, top with a double layer of towels.

INGREDIENTS
MUSHROOMS & SAUCE
  • 8 ounces baby portabella mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Fresh pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon dry sherry
  • 3/4 cup half & half or heavy cream (don't use fat-free half-n-half, it won't thicken)
  • Salt & pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS
Clean the mushrooms; break off and discard the stems. Break the mushroom tops into pieces.
Melt the butter in a skillet til shimmery. Add the mushrooms, garlic, salt and pepper. Stirring often, cook til mushrooms begin to soften and exude their liquid, about 6 minutes. Stir in flour and cook a minute. Add the chicken stock, sherry and bring to a simmer. Add the half & half, simmer til sauce thickens, about 10 - 15 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Stir in the cooked beans til they're evenly distributed throughout the sauce.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 slice good whole grain bread (I used this whole grain bread, the version without beets)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 a 2.8 ounce can of French fried onions
  • 1/8 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/16 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

INSTRUCTIONS
In the food processor, process the bread, butter and seasonings in about 10 quick pulses. Stir in the onions -- but don't process. If making ahead, transfer to a storage container and refrigerate.

COOKING RIGHT AWAY Preheat oven to 425F. Transfer hot bean mixture to a greased quiche pan or baking dish. Top green beans with topping and bake for 15 minutes. The green bean casserole recipe is ready ...enjoy !
