French Onion Green Bean Casserole

The green bean casserole is an American classic comfort food that is a staple during Thanksgiving dinners. This is the perfect side dish for the classic roasted turkey and has been served in American homes for centuries. This recipe gives a French twist to this American classic. It combines delicious green beans with a white creamy sauce and topped off with Japanese breadcrumbs.
