Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup diced white onion
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup sliced crimini mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups milk

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons bacon bits
  • 1/2 pound green beans, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon canned fried onions
Directions
  • In a 10-inch skillet over medium heat, sweat the onions in the butter. Add the garlic and mushrooms and saute for 2 minutes. Add the flour and cook for 2 to 5 minutes. Slowly whisk in the milk and season with the cayenne, salt, and pepper, to taste. Fold in the bacon bits.

  • Preheat the grill to high heat.

  • Blanch the green beans in salted boiling water for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove to an ice bath for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the ice bath, drain, and pat dry with a paper towel when cool. Toss the green beans in the extra-virgin olive oil and a little salt and pepper. Grill for 3 minutes.

  • Place the green beans on a plate and top with the mushroom sauce and fried onions.
