DAILY RECIPE: The best green bean casserole

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Thanksgiving is coming up, and Pine Belt families are preparing for their meals. 

Green bean casserole is a Southern favorite all year long, especially during the holidays.

Here is the best green bean casserole recipe according to The Novice Chef blog.

directions:Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a 9x13 casserole dish, set aside.

Blanch the beans: In a large pot, bring about a gallon of water and 2 tablespoons of salt to a boil. Add the green beans and boil for 5 minutes. Drain in a colander and immediately plunge the beans into a large bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Drain and set aside.

Melt butter in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and onions, stirring occasionally, until the onions begin to soften, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, salt and pepper and continue to cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.

Sprinkle in the flour and stir to combine. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth and stir to combine. Then add the half and half and simmer until the mixture thickens, stirring occasionally, approximately 6 to 8 minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir in all of the green beans. Transfer green bean mixture to prepared casserole dish. Top with the bread crumbs and then layer the french fried onions on top.

Place casserole in the oven and bake until bubbly, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately!
