Ingredients

  • Oven “Fried” Onions:

  • – 1 large onion

  • – 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  • – 3/4 cup Panko-style bread crumbs

  • – 1/2 tsp salt

  • – 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

  • – 1 large egg

  • – 1 tbsp milk

  • Green Bean Casserole:

  • – 1 tbsp 1 tsp salt, divided

  • – 1 lb fresh green beans, rinse, trimmed and halved

  • – 2 tbsp unsalted butter

  • – 8 oz mushrooms, sliced

  • – 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

  • – 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • – 2 tbsp all-purpose flour

  • – 3/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth

  • – 1-1/4 cups half-and-half

Directions

Preheat the oven to 475°. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside. For the onions: Thinly slice the onion. Pour flour in one small bowl, Panko salt pepper into a medium bowl, and whisk the egg and milk together in another small bowl. To bread the onion slices, you’ll want to use one hand for dry and one hand for wet. It helps things move a little quicker and easier. First, dip a few slices into the flour. Then into the egg mixture. And finally, give them a nice dunk into the Panko and coat them well. Place onto baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the onions. Bake onions until golden brown, about 25 minutes. Flip them twice during this time. Set them aside. Reduce oven to 400° For the green beans: While onions are baking, bring a gallon of water and 1 Tablespoon of salt to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the beans and blanch for 5 minutes. Drain and immediately place into a large bowl filled with ice water to stop the cooking process. Drain again and set aside. Put it together: Over medium-high heat, melt the butter in a large 10 – 12 inch ovenproof skillet. Add the mushrooms, 1 teaspoon salt, and the pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms begin to give off some of their moisture– about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, stir, and cook for another 2 minutes. Sprinkle the flour on top and stir until combined. The flour will soak up all the moisture. Add the chicken broth and simmer for 3 minutes. Decrease the heat to medium-low and add the half-and-half. Stirring occasionally, cook until the mixture is thick– about 10 minutes or maybe more if you prefer a thicker sauce. Remove from the heat and add 1/4 of the onions and all of the green beans. Give it a nice stir, combining the sauce and beans. Top with remaining onions and bake until bubbly, about 10-15 minutes.
