Natalie Mikles with Made in Oklahoma joined the News On 6 team on Wednesday to share a recipe for Homemade Green Bean Casserole


Serves: 8-12

Forget the cans of creamed soup. This elevated green bean casserole is made from scratch, and you can tell the difference in the fresh flavor. Bar-S Bacon and J-M Mushrooms give great flavor. Everyone will want the recipe for this upgraded classic Thanksgiving dish.


1 (12-ounce) package Bar-S Bacon, cooked and crumbled

1 package sliced J-M Farms Mushrooms

1 yellow onion, finely diced

2 tablespoons Hiland Dairy Butter

2 tablespoons Shawnee Mills All-Purpose Flour

2 1/2 cups Hiland Dairy Half and Half or Whole Milk

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

½ teaspoon ground black pepper

Salt to taste

2 large (28-ounce) cans Italian-style green beans

1 package french-fried onions


1. In a large cast-iron skillet, saute the bacon until crispy. Remove and let cool. Reserve 1-2 tablespoons of the bacon grease in the hot pan for sauteing the mushrooms. Add the mushrooms into the hot grease, flattening to even them in the pan but not stirring. Once the heat has returned to the pan start turning the mushrooms and browning the other sides. Remove them and reserve with the bacon strips. Lower the heat, and in a dry pan saute the onion until translucent and cooked through. Reserve with the mushrooms.

2. Using the same pan, heat the butter on medium to low heat until it clarifies, then add the flour and stir for 2-3 minutes. Add the half and half or milk, stirring with a whisk until it begins to thicken. Add the mushrooms and onions. Crumble in the bacon. Add the nutmeg and pepper, and season lightly with salt. 

3. Drain the green beans, and pour into a large casserole dish. Evenly pour the sauce over the green beans and place in a preheated 350-degree oven for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and top with the French-fried onions. Bake an additional 20 minutes.
