Onion-Cheese Topping

  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon chopped Italian parsley
  • 1 cup grated Arla® Dofino® Creamy Havarti Chunk

Mushroom Sauce

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 12-ounce packages of wild mushrooms
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1 cup shredded Arla® Dofino® Creamy Havarti Chunk

Beans

  • 2 pounds trimmed green beans
  • 1 tablespoon salt (for blanching)
  • 1 cup fried onions

Instructions

Prepare topping: Mix together the panko breadcrumbs with butter and parsley. Add the cheese and toss just to combine. Set aside. Prepare the cream sauce: Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add mushrooms and cook until tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in flour until it is absorbed, about 1 minute. Add the stock and pepper and gently stir until blended and it begins to thicken, about 3 minutes. Finish the sauce by stirring in the cream and Havarti cheese, gently mix until smooth, about 2 minutes. Set aside. Beans: In the meantime, preheat the oven to 375°F. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add the beans and cook until crisp-tender. Drain off all the water and combine beans with the mushroom sauce. Transfer to a 2-quart casserole dish and cover with the panko-cheese topping. Add a few fried onions on top and bake until heated through, about 20 minutes.
