Bacon-Topped Green Bean Casserole

Directions

  1. In an extra-large skillet cook beans in boiling lightly salted water about 3 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Transfer to a bowl of ice water to stop cooking. Drain again; set aside. Meanwhile, in a small bowl pour the 1 cup boiling water over the dried mushrooms. Cover and let stand for 15 minutes.
  2. In the same extra-large skillet cook bacon until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to a small bowl lined with a paper towel; crumble bacon. Reserve about 1 tablespoon of the bacon drippings in skillet; discard the remaining drippings. Cook cremini mushrooms in the reserved drippings over medium-high heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Stir in garlic. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Remove from heat. Stir in green beans.
  3. Meanwhile, use a fork to remove the dried mushrooms from the water (do not discard liquid). Chop the mushrooms; add to green bean mixture.
  4. For sauce, in a medium saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour. Cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in all but about 2 tablespoons of the mushroom liquid (discard the liquid at the bottom of the bowl, which may be gritty). Stir in half-and-half. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Remove from heat. Stir in rosemary, salt, and pepper. (To serve today, omit Step 5 and continue as directed in Step 6.)
  5. Transfer crumbled bacon, green bean mixture, and sauce to separate airtight containers. Cover; chill for up to 24 hours.
  6. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Stir the sauce into the bean mixture. Spoon into a 2-quart square baking dish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly. Top with bacon. Bake for 5 minutes more.

I make this every year. It's good. I don't put all the salt in either. IMO the bacon makes it salty-ish. The sauce is too much for the amount of green beans for us but we make a lot of sauce and freeze it for other times when you need sauce. This recipe is REALLY good. Not heart healthy by any means, but really good!

Way too much salt. It sounds delicious, but healthy is something different.

And I also can not see any reviews apart from other users, who have the same problem.

WAY too much salt! And I never ever saw any reviews....

Might be delicious, but healthy? Any suggestions to reduce the salt?

Maybe the reviews don't exist & it's just a ploy to get you to up their clicks.

I never can see the reviews, and it is frustrating. Because of that, I almost never make the recipes.

I think it's because there are any reviews, except for the two of you =) Others have rated the recipe and many have viewed it, though.
