Ingredients

  • 6 slices bacon
  • 2 medium onions
  • 1/4 cup and 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 1 lb fresh green beans
  • 12 oz fresh mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup half and half

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 475° F.
  2. Wash the veggies. Slice the mushrooms into pieces about a 1/2 in thick, halve the green beans, and thinly slice the onions.
  3. Combine onions, bread crumbs, 1/4 cup flour, and sprinkle with salt (not the 2 tbsp measured out, that’s for later) and toss to combine.
  4. Spray nonstick cooking spray on baking sheet and evenly spread onions.
  5. Place in oven until golden brown, about 30 min, and toss them every 10 min to ensure they cook evenly.
  6. Remove from oven and turn down to 400° F.
  7. While the onions are cooking, boil a gallon of water and 2 tbsp of salt into an 8 qt saucepan. Add the beans and cook for 5 min, then place them in a bowl of ice water. This stops them from overcooking, and gives them a deep green color. Drain the beans and set them aside.
  8. Fry the bacon in a skillet with salt and pepper. Remove them just as they start to get crispy, pat dry of grease, and break into small pieces. Keep the grease in the skillet.
  9. Add mushrooms to the skillet and cook about 5 min, stirring occasionally. If there’s not enough grease from the bacon, add 1 tbsp of butter.
  10. Add garlic and cook an additional 1-2 min.
  11. Sprinkle 2 tbsp flour and cook an additional minute. Add chicken broth and let simmer for another minute.
  12. Reduce heat to low and add the half and half. Cook until the mixture thickens, about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  13. Remove from heat, add green beans, and half of the onions and bacon. Stir to combine, and top with the rest of the onions and bacon.
  14. Place into oven and bake for about 15 minutes, or until it’s bubbly.
  15. Serve hot. Be thankful for family, friends, and bacon. Do not share with family and friends.
