Posted by Haley Bauer

Mushrooms and water chestnuts give new life to ordinary green bean casserole!


1 can (8 ounces) of sliced water chestnuts, drained
1 small onion, chopped

1 jar (4-1/2 ounces) of sliced mushrooms, drained
6 tablespoons butter, divided
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup 2% milk
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
Dash salt
1 package (16 ounces) of frozen french-style green beans, thawed
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup crushed french-fried onions


-Preheat oven to 350°. In a small skillet, saute water chestnuts, onion, and mushrooms in 2 tablespoons butter until onion is crisp-tender, 4-5 minutes.

-In a large skillet, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter; stir in flour until smooth. Stir in milk, broth, soy sauce, pepper sauce, and salt. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in green beans and cheese.

-Spoon half of the bean mixture into a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Layer with water chestnut mixture and remaining bean mixture.

-Bake, uncovered, 45 minutes. Top with french-fried onions. Bake until heated through, about 5 minutes longer.
