Green Bean Casserole with Crispy Shallots 

A holiday green bean casserole is a beloved classic. We stayed true to tradition on this one, pairing tender, sautéed green beans with savory Cremini mushrooms in a rich cream sauce. It’s topped with crispy shallots for added umami flavor and a satisfying crunch.

How to Cook this Tasty Thanksgiving Side

Here’s what you’ll need to bring our Green Bean Casserole with Crispy Shallots to your Thanksgiving table. 


  • Green beans
  • Heavy cream
  • Fried shallots W
  • Cremini mushrooms
  • Shallot-garlic confit


(M) Milk

(W) Wheat

Supplies to gather:

  • Nonstick saute pan with a lid (10 inches or larger)
  • Kitchen knife & cutting board 
  • Cooking spoon
  • Paper towels
  • Salt & pepper
  • Cooking oil


Use a damp paper towel to gently wipe the cremini mushrooms clean as needed, then thinly slice.

Trim the ends from the green beans if needed, then cut in half.

Heat 2 tbsp. of cooking oil in a nonstick saute pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, carefully add the mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 3 min, or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. 

Stir in the shallot-garlic confit and cook for 30 sec, or until fragrant. 

Stir in the green beans and add ¼ cup of water. Cover the pan and cook for 3 min, or until the beans are tender and brightly colored. Uncover and cook for 30 sec, or until the liquid has completely evaporated. 

Pour in the heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Cook for 4-6 min, or until the sauce has reduced and thickened, stirring occasionally. Turn off the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. When ready to serve, top the green bean casserole with the fried shallots
