Prep time: Cook time:
Recipe Cuisine: American Recipe Category: Vegetables Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 3 pound(s) fresh green beans
  • trimmed and chopped in half if they're real long
  • 8 ounce(s) stemmed
  • sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 1 - large white onion
  • chopped
  • 1/2 stick(s) butter or margarine
  • 1 package(s) center cut bacon
  • 1 package(s) French fried onions
  • 6 oz
  • 2 can(s) cream of mushroom soup
  • 10.5 oz each
  • 32 ounce(s) chicken broth or stock
  • 1-2 teaspoon(s) garlic powder and fresh chopped garlic (to your liking)
  • several - shakes of Parmesan cheese (the grated kind
  • not fresh)
  • - salt to taste and lots of pepper
Intructions :
  • I started by chopping and dicing everything that needed it to save time.
  • Then boil the green beans covered on med/high heat in the chicken broth with salt and pepper until tender (about 10 minutes). Not too tender because you don't want soggy green beans (no one likes that).
  • While they were boiling
  • I cooked all the bacon until pretty crispy and drained it on paper towels
  • chopped it and set it off to the side. When the green beans are done
  • drain them and leave them in the pot uncovered.
  • Sautee the mushrooms and onion in the butter with a pinch of salt and pepper until the mushrooms have shrunk down and the onions are tender. While they're cooking
  • add the garlic.
  • Add the mushroom/onion mixture and the cream of mushroom soup to the green beans with another pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  • Dump the mixture into a casserole dish
  • add 1/2 the bacon
  • and 1/2 the French fried onions. Stir.
  • Then sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top and bake on 400 for about 15-20 minutes until it's bubbly.
  • Top with the remaining French onions
  • bacon
  • and another generous sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. Return to the oven for another 15 minutes or until the French onions start to get a nice brown color.
  • Enjoy!!! ]
