Total time
Serves: 6 servings
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ½ cup finely diced yellow onion
  • 6 oz fresh mushrooms, cleaned and chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2½ cups whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 (14.5 oz) Del Monte Cut Green Beans, drained
  • 6 ounces French fried onions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Heat the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the onions until soft and translucent, 5-7 minutes. Add the mushrooms and garlic and cook until the mushrooms have released their juices and are tender, 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the flour and cook for another minute. Add the milk, stirring constantly to prevent lumping, and bring to a simmer. Continue stirring until the mixture is thickened. Add the chicken bouillon, salt and pepper. Cover, reduce the heat to medium, and simmer for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Stir in the green beans and, if desired, ⅓ of the French fried onions. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Pour the mixture into a 1½ quart casserole dish. Bake for 30 minutes until hot. Sprinkle with the remaining French fried onions and bake for another 5 minutes until the onions are golden brown.
  6. Serve immediately.
