How To Make Skillet Green Bean Casserole Recipe
The first part of this recipe is making the crispy onion topping. It’s really simple to do: slice your onions, then dip the onion slices in beaten egg. Then, coat the slices with breadcrumbs. Place them on a greased baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until brown and crispy. Set them aside until later.
In your large oven-proof skillet, heat butter, garlic, and peppercorn over medium-high heat until fragrant. Toss in sliced mushrooms and flour, stirring several times to coat, and cook 5 minutes.
Add in vegetable broth and heavy cream, stir, and cook another 5-6 minutes or until thickened. Add in your rinsed and cut green beans, stirring to coat them in the mixture.
OPTIONAL: If you wish for your green beans to be very tender, we recommend covering the skillet with foil and bake for 20 minutes until beans are to your liking. Only use this option if you have an oven-proof skillet.
Just before serving, stir in some of the crispy onion topping, coating it with the mixture.
Top with the remaining green beans and serve!

2 cups fresh green beans (ends cut off and cut into 2-3″ pieces)
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon minced garlic
½ teaspoon crushed peppercorn (or to taste)
½ cup sliced mushrooms
¼ cup flour

Add in vegetable broth and heavy cream, stir, and cook another 5-6 minutes or until thickened. Add green beans to mixture, stir to coat.
Stir in some of the crispy onions and coat with mixture. Top green bean casserole with remaining crisply onions and serve.
If green beans need additional cooking to reach desired doneness after cooking on the stovetop, and you used an oven-safe skillet (such as cast iron) you can cover skillet and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degree F or until green beans are done.
