Ingredients

  • 4 Slices Bacon (Sugar Free) *Note 1
  • 2 Cups Mushrooms (Sliced) *Note 2
  • 1 Cup Yellow Onion (Diced)
  • 1 Cup Heavy Whipped Cream
  • 1/4 Cup Cream Cheese (Not Fat Free)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/8 tsp Ground Thyme
  • 1 Lb Green Beans (Trimmed)

Instructions

  • Cook the bacon using your preferred cooking method (oven/microwave/stovetop) until very crispy. We prefer to keep it simple by popping them in the microwave, covered, for about 3-4 minutes. Once cooked, transfer to a paper towel lined plate and set aside. Reserve a tablespoon of bacon fat.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add the tablespoon of reserved bacon fat (* Note 3), mushrooms and onions and cook until golden brown (approx. 3-4 min.)
  • Add the heavy whipped cream, cream cheese, salt, pepper and thyme and bring to a boil. Stir consistently, until the mixture begins to thicken (approx. 4 minutes). Reduce the heat to medium and cook down until the mixture is thick (approx. 7 minutes).
  • While cooking the cheese sauce, bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Add the green beans and cook until slightly tender (5-7 minutes). Drain and pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Add the green beans to the cheese sauce and stir until evenly coated.
  • Transfer to a 8x8 inch pan and cook for 18-20 minutes.
  • Place the cooked bacon in a food processor and pulse until small crumbs form.  Sprinkle the bacon crumbles over the baked casserole and bake for another 5 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and enjoy immediately for best texture.

Notes

  1. Make sure to use sugar free bacon. 
  2. Use your preferred mushroom type- we prefer button, brown or white.
  3. If you didn't reserve any bacon fat, use 1 Tbsp of butter instead.
