I made this for a Thanksgiving work potluck and it was the first pan to be cleared. This recipe is definitely for a group and even those who don't normally like green bean casserole LOVED it! Try it this holiday season if you get a chance.

This is not your ordinary green bean casserole recipe. There's bacon inside and oh boy is it good. Using fresh ingredients elevates this dish. Having fresh mushrooms, bacon, and french fried onions mixed into the casserole and then adding Parmesan cheese at the end adds so much flavor. This side dish would impress any one at a potluck or a holiday meal. After tasting this recipe, you may never make green bean casserole another way again! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Delectable Bacon & Mushroom Green Bean Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. I started by chopping and dicing everything that needed it to save time.
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Dump the mixture into a casserole dish, add 1/2 the bacon, and 1/2 the French fried onions. Stir.
  7. Then sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top and bake on 400 for about 15-20 minutes until it's bubbly.
  8. 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.
  9. Enjoy!!!
