When one thinks of green bean casserole, images of Thanksgiving casseroles jam-packed with green beans and cream of mushroom soup topped with French fried onion crisps. But if you are looking for both a variation on green bean casserole or stuffed mushroom caps, Shemakesandbakes.com has created the recipe for you! Green bean casserole stuffed mushroom caps are the ideal appetizer/side dish.

The recipe for this dish is as follows:

Ingredients:

  • 8 to 10 large mushrooms (cleaned and stemmed.)

For the filling:

  • 10 to 12 green beans (trimmed)
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 clove of minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup of chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup of heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt

For the onion topping:

  • 1 small shallot (thinly sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon of all purpose flour
  • a dash of salt
  • a dash of pepper
  • a dash of cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. While oven is preheating making the onion topping. Start by heating the oil in a small skillet.
  3. Soak the sliced shallots in milk.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl mix together flour, salt, pepper, and cayenne.
  5. Dredge the shallots through the flour mixture.
  6. Fry onions until golden brown then place on a paper towel to dry.
  7. Place mushroom cap side down on the baking sheet and bake for twenty minutes.
  8. Drain excess liquid.
  9. While the mushrooms are cooking, create the filling. Melt the butter in the pan and whisk in flour and garlic.
  10. Whisk in chicken broth.
  11. Add the green beans and allow them to cook for six minutes.
  12. Whisk in heavy cream and allow to cook an additional two minutes or until mixture has thickened.
  13. Season with salt to taste.
  14. Spoon a teaspoon of the green beans into each mushroom cap and top with fried onion topping.
  15. Serve immediately.

This recipe is out of the world! While it does take some time and skill to create it is definitely worth the trouble. I would not recommend this recipe to be made by novice cooks. However, intermediate and advanced cooks should have no problem with this recipe. The mushrooms are cooked to perfection, the filling outstandingly scrumptious, and the topping adds the perfect hint of onion flavor and crispness. This will certainly become a staple recipe on many a dinner table once you try this one out (and not just during the holidays!)
