This is something that I put together myself from bits of other recipes. It is all fresh, no cans. Delicious!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Except for French fried onions, there's nothing canned in this green bean casserole recipe. The green beans are fresh and crispy. Super creamy, the sour cream sauce has a little zing from lemon zest. Shredded cheddar adds that bit of cheesy goodness to the casserole. It's not green bean casserole without fried onions on top and they add a nice crunch. Don't be afraid to try this easy to make fresh green bean casserole at your holiday dinner. We think everyone will love it. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Fresh Green Bean Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Boil your green beans for about ten minutes until cooked through. Drain. Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan over low heat sauté diced onions, thyme, parsley, and garlic in butter for 5 minutes.
  3. Blend in salt, pepper, flour, and lemon peel. Add sour cream and sherry. Cook on low for 3 minutes.
  4. Grease a medium/large casserole dish with butter. Add cooked and drained beans along with sliced mushrooms to the dish. Pour the sour cream and spice mix over the beans, stir gently to coat. Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove and top with friend onions. I like to cover the top completely with fried onions. Then bake another 10 mins until golden. Then serve and enjoy!
