The Best 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 are 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!

YouTube’s Green Bean Casserole

I released this Green Bean Casserole video for Thanksgiving, 2 years ago, and it did really well among my subscribers.  Anyone that tried this recipe, absolutely, raved about it.  If you’re new to this recipe, my videos or my blog for that matter, I encourage you to investigate my food libraries here on my site or on my YouTube Channel.  There are currently more than 300 of my personal video recipes posted now and there are several, revolving around these upcoming holidays, you won’t want to miss.  Be sure to check out some of my classic recipes, like my Garlic Mashed Potatoes, my Southern Style Sweet Potato Casserole and my Croissant Dressing/Stuffing, just to name a few.  My Thanksgiving Playlist can be seen HERE!

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

For this Green Bean Casserole, 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!
