A delicious version of the classic green bean casserole! The fried shallots add another element of flavor to an already-yummy dish!

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, add 1 inch of canola oil. Carefully heat the oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (use a thermometer to check).
  2. As the oil heats up, place 1 cup of flour in a bowl and dredge the large shallot rings in it.
  3. When the oil reaches approximately 350 degrees, start dropping the shallot rings into the oil in small amounts. Let them fry until they turn golden brown (it takes a few minutes), taking care not to burn them (I did this).
  4. Use a slotted spoon to remove the fried shallots and place on a paper towel. Set aside. Repeat until all the shallots are fried.
  5. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté the bell pepper, the onion, the diced shallots, and the garlic. Add the salt and pepper, then sauté for approximately 10 minutes.
  6. Add 1/3 cup flour.
  7. Add the water, then add the cream, stirring continually.
  8. Continue cooking on medium heat.
  9. Add ½ cup of the Parmesan cheese.
  10. Add the cayenne pepper.
  11. Now you need your cooked green beans.
  12. Add the green beans to the sauce mixture, mix thoroughly.
  13. Transfer to a buttered baking dish and top with the remaining Parmesan cheese.
  14. Add the breadcrumbs.
  15. Add the fried shallots and bake in a 350-degree oven for approximately 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
  16. Serve and enjoy!
