Fresh Green Bean Casserole

We are another week closer to Thanksgiving and I wanted to share another recipe that is a favorite in my house! I use fresh green beans in this casserole and I think it makes such a big difference so if you can use fresh green beans instead of frozen or canned I HIGHLY recommend it!

Fresh Green Bean Casserole

1 1/2 lbs. fresh green beans (rinsed and trimmed)

3 Tbsp. butter

2 cloves minced garlic

2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

3/4 c. chicken broth

1 1/3 c. milk

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1 c. French’s Fried Onions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 9×13 baking dish. Cook green beans in boiling water for 5-7 minutes. Drain green beans and put aside. In a medium saucepan melt butter. Add garlic and let it cook for about 30 seconds. Whisk in flour until smooth. Cook for 1 minute-stirring constantly. Add chicken broth and let cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour in milk and lower heat to low. Continue stirring until sauce thickens (about 10 minutes). Stir in salt and pepper. Pour sauce evenly over green beans and gentle mix together. Pour green bean mixture in baking dish. Top evenly with fried onions. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Place foil over casserole for the last 10 minutes of cooking to prevent the fried onions from burning. Enjoy!

I hope you enjoy this weeks recipe for Thanksgiving. Be sure to check back next week when I share another recipe that is a favorite at my house for Thanksgiving.
