I brought the….

Green Bean Casserole

2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 large bag of frozen green beans
1 – 1 1/2 C of half and half
1 medium onion, chopped
2 Tbsp butter
1 can of mushrooms
1/2 t nutmeg
Salt & pepper to taste
1 can of french fried onions

Cook green beans in a large bowl in the microwave according to package directions. In a large skillet, saute onion until it is soft. Add mushrooms, cooked green beans, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Push vegetables to one side of the pan and add half and half. With a whisk, add cornstarch in small amounts until half and half thickens up and creates a gravy. Adding any additional half and half if it gets too thick. Stir veggies into this mixture. Add 1 cup of french fried onions to this mix, stirring gently to not pulverize. Pour into a greased casserole dish, sprinkle more french fried onions on top. Bake for 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

Best green bean casserole EVER. I’m not kidding. This is not the mush that you remember from your days of canned cream of MUSHroom soup. This is really fantastic. I’m no food snob, but I’m not a fan of the “traditional nostalgia” known as green bean casserole. Try this. You’ll change your mind!
