A few days ago, I promised a Thanksgiving recipe that involved Panko bread crumbs. Here it is folks, a panko topped green bean casserole. I got this recipe from Kikkoman. This recipe was a welcomed change. You make this with with fresh green beans that you blanch. They include a topping that includes onions, mushrooms, and garlic that you sauté in butter. Then you add a can of cream of mushroom soup which is you traditionally use in green been casserole. Next, you sprinkle the whole thing with a cup of Panko bread crumbs.
I loved the use of the fresh green beans in this panko topped green bean casserole. You could probably use frozen green beans if you thaw them to simplify this recipe. I also loved the fresh mushrooms in the dish. The whole thing had a nice, fresh flavor. The Panko bread crumb topping was also a refreshing change. You could always top your own green bean casserole with some Panko.
