Green Bean Casserole

Green Bean Casserole

This is definitely my favorite Green Bean Casserole recipe.  Just have a look at the ingredients and I think you’ll agree or at least understand why I feel the way I do.  I mean, Bacon says it all doesn’t it?  I’ve been wanting to throw down some traditional Holiday recipes this season that have a little bit of a spin on them that just make the dishes a little more vibrant than what we’ve been use to in the past.  At the same time though, I wanted to make sure that the change was subtle enough to not take over the recipe and actually ruin the over all flavor.  I believe this recipe is more than successful with that, adding even 3 other ingredients; Portobello Mushrooms, Bread Dressing Stuffing and Cheese!

Green Bean Casserole Ingredients:

2 1/2 cup Green Beans
3 Cup Chicken Broth
1 lbs Bacon, chopped
1/3 stick Butter
1 Onion, chopped
5 Portobello Mushrooms, chopped
1 Garlic Clove, chopped
1 cup Stuffing, dehydrated
2 cans Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 can French Onions
Salt and Pepper to taste
Adobo to taste (Optional, Garlic Powder with other ingredients)
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated

Heat 3 Cups of Chicken Broth in a Pot and add the Green Beans.  Heat for 10 minutes if they’re fresh uncooked Beans and 5 minutes if they are canned, then Strain and add the beans only to a separate bowl.  Cut the bacon into 1/2 inch strips and start cooking.  Cut and chop all veggies.  In a hot pan add 1/3 stick of butter and saute the veggies until tender, then salt and pepper to taste and add the Adobo (or Garlic Powder and Oregano).  De-grease the bacon on a paper towel and along with the chopped Onions and Mushrooms, with the exception of the cheese, start to combine all the remaining ingredients with the Green beans.  Stir in the Mushroom Soup and add the French onions, then poor the mixture into an oven sage Casserole Dish and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Add the cheese after and bake for 5 more minutes until the cheese is melted, and serve your Green Bean Casserole!

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
