Hot and bubbly straight from the oven, this green bean casserole features crunchy beans tossed in a creamy mushroom sauce. A simple quick boiling and cooling method yields crisp-tender, bright green vegetables instead of their mushy canned cousins. Topped with golden fried onions rings, it’s a side dish that people will fight over. I know we do at my house!
Green bean casserole is one of the most highly anticipated dishes during the holidays. My version has a few crowd-pleasing upgrades. I wanted to see if I could turn an underwhelming yet traditional side dish into something mouth-watering. So you won’t find frozen or canned green beans here. Instead, break out the high-quality, fresh ingredients for outstanding taste and texture. I’ll even show you how to make your own onion rings for the topping.
Breaking down the recipe into three distinct parts makes it easy. By cooking each component with care, the green beans, gravy and onion rings can all reach their flavor potential. You’ll be surprised just how simple this dish is to make. This will be the most requested item at any Thanksgiving dinner or get together….
