Green bean casserole today, and yes, I have opinions! Bright tender green beans, liberally coated but not drowning in creamy sauce, with lots of flavor, and a crispy onion topping, but nothing else that you don’t need. Like mushrooms. 😬

Listen, you know I love mushrooms. But green bean casserole is not the place I want to bite into big chunks of mushrooms, ya know? Just speaking for myself here. So I replaced the mushroom chunks with a shot of soy sauce to give us back some of that missing umami flavor, plus some Gruyère, and grated fresh garlic, and white wine… and what we ended up with is a very creamy, very beautiful, very casserole-y green bean situation that doesn’t involve any unnecessary mushrooms.

Crispy topping, tender beans, the perfect amount of flavorful, clingy, silky sauce… this is how I do GB Casserole. Just made on stories if you need a close up!

PS. My two littles would like to offer their 5-star reviews for this one. Big fans.
