Grilled Green Bean “Casserole”

green bean "casserole"The weather is turning warmer, so grilling season is in high gear. While we grill year around, it is not unusual for us to fix something on the grill 3 nights a week in the summer. For some reason, I have healthy Thanksgiving on my mind, and decided to use the green beans to make a green bean “casserole” on the grill.

Grilled Green Bean "Casserole"
Recipe type: Side Dish
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 3 small button mushrooms, halved and then sliced
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme, remove the leaves from the stems
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds, toasted
  1. Preheat grill.
  2. Cut a piece of wide, heavy duty aluminum foil about 5 feet long and fold in half. Spray one side with non stick cooking spray.
  3. Place beans, mushrooms, onions, olive oil and thyme leaves on foil. Drugstore wrap the foil into a package.
  4. Grill package on the grill for 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes.
  5. Toss almonds into the beans just prior to serving.

If you don’t remember how to do the drugstore wrap, the directions are here.

I served this with grilled pork chops, but it would also be good with steak or chicken.

Happy eating!
