French Cuffs Seasoning Recipe: Green Bean Casserole

Green Bean Casserole is another time-honored holiday dinner side, though it’s often prepared with canned soup. This scrumptious recipe from Golden Steer's Chef Andrea swaps the can for homemade cream of mushroom sauce and a breadcrumb topping featuring our signature Maitre d’ Butter and onion-forward French Cuffs Seasoning for a dish like no other.

Here's what you’ll need to bring a new flavor experience to a classic casserole:


Casserole Base

  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 cups Cremini mushrooms
  • 1 cup Oyster mushrooms
  • Sergio's Seasoning, to taste

  • 4 tablespoons Maitre d’ Butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cream
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons cream
  • 1 tablespoon French Cuffs Seasoning
  • 3 cups Green beans
