True confession time – Thanksgiving dinner is my least favorite holiday dinner. I know, I know, something must be wrong with me. Every other person I meet loves Thanksgiving dinner but not me. I mean, I don’t hate it. I’m not mad at it, but I don’t get into a frenzy over it. However, I always look forward to one particular side dish, green bean casserole.
White Wine Green Bean Casserole Made From Scratch is heavenly. It adds a touch of sophistication to it’s Campbel’s Mushroom Soup counterpart.
Speaking of Campbell’s Mushroom Soup, don’t get me wrong. If you serve me green bean casserole made with Campbell’s soup I will gobble it down in a heartbeat. I’m not hating or judging anyone who makes the green bean casserole this way. In fact, I’m pretty sure that’s how my mom made it when I was little. Like a typical kid, my mom had a hard time making me eat vegetables, but I always enjoyed green bean casserole.
I just thought it would be fun to make the recipe from scratch. And add white wine. Because white wine. Need I say anything more my fellow winos? I think not.
Now if you are comparing my recipe to old fashion green bean casserole made with Campbell’s soup, mine has a drawback. My recipe will take you longer to make. BUT, your guests will be able to taste the love you put into White Wine Green Bean Casserole Made From Scratch. How can you beat that?
My green bean casserole is time-consuming, I’ll admit it, but it’s easy to make. You can even multitask and cook some of the steps at the same time. Here’s what I did:
I started off by blanching the green beans in boiling water. While I was waiting for the water to boil, I started to cook the onion and mushroom mixture in my cast iron skillet. This mixture takes the longest to cook but you don’t have to babysit it the entire time. Just remember to stir them occasionally so they don’t burn. If you’re worried about the mixture burning, simply turn down the heat to low until you’re able to watch it.
After I blanched the green beans and drained them in a colander, I used the same pot I cooked them in for the white sauce. While the white sauce was simmering, I quickly stirred together the bread crumbs and melted butter.
For the assembly, I scoped half of the onion mixture out of my cast iron skillet onto a plate. I smeared the remaining mixture around the bottom of the skillet and finished assembly from there. Reusing my cast iron skillet and the other pots cut down on the dishes I had to do. And if you multitask the steps, the recipe comes together in no time! Plus it tastes amazeballs people, AMAZEBALLS!
Can you add crunchy fried onions or jalapenos to the top of this bad boy? Hmm, let me think… YES! Oh my God, YES! I opted for breadcrumbs but you need to live out your green bean casserole-y dreams. When in doubt, you do you. Always do you.
Alright, gang, that’s a wrap on White Wine Green Bean Casserole Made From Scratch. Kieran and I are hosting a Friendsgiving Potluck Party in two days so I have an epic cheese board to go shopping for. OMG, I can’t wait to show you how the Munch handles a cheese board.
