The best part of green bean casserole for me is those crunchy onions sprinkled on top. So I wanted to capture that in a recipe I can use all year long. I thought this would be a good time to share this recipe with you as gardens and farm stands are about to be bursting with fresh from the garden green beans if they aren’t already!
So here are the ingredients for these delicious green beans:
Very simple to make, first you wash and snap the ends off the beans, then slice the onion and sauté the onion slices in a little oil/butter (I always forget to add those to my picture of the ingredients).
While the onions are cooking, par boil the beans. I like mine a little crunchy so I don’t go to long here, but this will be the main way the beans get cooked so anywhere from 3-6 minutes depending on how well done you like your beans.
Once the beans are done (3-6 minute boil) drain them and add them to your frying pan that has the onions in it. Add salt and pepper and then drizzle with some balsamic glaze. I give a good squeeze of the glaze as it adds a nice zippy flavor. Stir these together well.
Then you plate the beans and cooked onions and top with the Durkee Crispy Onions.
