I originally posted these Roasted Green Beans with Cremini Bacon Mushroom Sauce on Real Housemoms where I am a contributor.
Wonderfully flavorful, crisp tender Roasted Green Beans with Cremini Bacon Mushroom Sauce are easy enough for every day but delicious enough for special occasions (like Thanksgiving!)! If you are looking for an incredible alternative to green bean casserole, this is it!
I like green beans but I can’t say that I have always loved them uuuuuntil my Dijon Maple Green Beans with Caramelized Pecans, Bacon and Feta (so good, read the reviews!) and until these new Roasted Green Beans with Cremini Bacon Mushroom Sauce! They are both sooooo good and will make you fall in love with green beans all over again! I am pretty confident these Roasted Green Beans are going to become a year-round favorite dinner side, favorite side to impress company and favorite side when you simply crave flavorful fresh, tender crisp roasted green beans!
The Green Beans themselves are infused with tons of flavor by first tossing them with olive oil, salt, garlic, and onion powder and then roasting until desired crisp tenderness, about 12-15 minutes.
While the green beans are roasting, you create your delectable Creamy Cremini Bacon Mushroom Sauce that is infused with everything aromatic and wonderfully delicious – crispy bacon, shallots, garlic, oregano, thyme and splashes of Dijon and balsamic.
The sauce is further delishified with freshly grated Parmesan Cheese and cream to create a silky sauce bursting with an explosion of Y-U-M you will crave for days.
Because it has bacon.
And cremini mushrooms!
I chose to use cremini mushrooms because they are more mature than white mushrooms which means they boast a more developed flavor and are firmer so they stand up better when simmered. And these Green Beans will stand up to even your toughest critics.
Sprinkle your Roasted Green Beans with Cremini Bacon Mushroom Sauce with more bacon, Parmesan cheese and toasted pine nuts and you have a new year-round side that will make your taste buds giddy. And your family. And your guests. And even grandma.
