- 1 medium onion (sliced)
- 1/2 C. flour
- 1 C. panko bread crumbs
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 2 eggs
- 2 T. milk
- Preheat your oven to 475 degrees. Line a sheet pan with foil or parchment paper.
- Thinly slice the onions.
- Set up dredging station. You will need 3 small bowls.
- Pour flour in one bowl. Mix salt, pepper and panko in another bowl, and whisk the egg and 2T of milk in another.
- To bread, keep one hand clean and dip the onions first in the flour, then the egg, and lastly in the Panko making sure you fully coat the onion.
- Place them on to your sheet pan.
- Do a few onions at a time and repeat this process until all your onions are coated.
- Bake until golden brown, about 25-30 minutes.
- Flip them occasionally with a spatula.
- Bring a gallon of water and 1 T. of salt to a boil in a dutch oven or an oven safe large skillet. Once the water has reached a roaring boil, add the prepared green beans.
- Cook for 5 minutes.
- Drain and immediately, and immerse in an ice bath.
- This will stop the cooking process and keep their vibrant color!
- When they are no longer warm, drain and set aside.n the onions are crispy, take them out of the oven and lower the oven to 375 degrees.
For The Casserole
- Over medium heat, melt the butter in a large skillet.
- Add the mushrooms, salt and pepper. Stir occasionally until the mushrooms have released their moisture, about 8-10 minutes.
- Add the garlic and cook 1 minute. Deglaze the pan to get off the brown bits with white wine. Cook until the mushroom absorb the wine.
- Sprinkle the flour over the mushrooms.
- When all the moisture is gone, add the chicken stock and simmer for about 4 minutes.
- Lower the heat and add your half and half. Cook until your sauce thickens.
- This will take about 10-15 minutes.
- The longer it cooks the thicker your sauce will be.
- Remove from the heat and add your green beans and stir to combine.
- I like to add a handful of onions in to the casserole, but that is optional.
- Top the casserole with your baked onions and bake uncovered until you see it start to bubble, about 15 minutes!
- Remove and Enjoy!
