TV host and food and lifestyle expert Chadwick Boyd created three twists on the green bean casserole (The Puffed Mushroom, The Crabby Old Bay, and The Chili Garlic) in honor of the late Dorcas Reilly, who invented the iconic American dish. This spin adds fresh mushrooms to the casserole and caps it off with buttery, flaky, and super easy store-bought puff pastry, making it an easy yet elegant addition to your Thanksgiving table.
For the other two variations, see this Old Bay Green Bean Casserole with Crab recipe and this Chili Garlic Green Bean Casserole recipe. Also see Chadwick’s Pumpkin Chai Slab Pie recipe (with bourbon vanilla whipped cream to boot).
