This healthy green bean casserole is sure to be a hit at any holiday gathering. We've shortened (and lightened) this classic crowdpleaser by bringing everything together in one handy skillet and by using the stovetop and broiler rather than baking. These green beans are much lower in fat and sodium, but they're just as indulgent thanks to your cast-iron skillet's flavor-building magic.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler to high.

Step 2

Cook beans in a large saucepan filled with boiling water 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Plunge beans into ice water; drain well.

Step 3

Place bread in a food processor; pulse until coarse crumbs form. Stir in parsley, 1 tablespoon oil, garlic, and 2 tablespoons cheese.

Step 4

Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium. Add onion and mushrooms; sauté 8 minutes. Stir in flour; cook 1 minute. Stir in stock, milk, and sherry. Bring to a simmer; cook 3 minutes. Remove pan from heat; stir in remaining 4 tablespoons cheese, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Add beans to pan; toss to coat. Sprinkle evenly with breadcrumb mixture. Broil 2 minutes.
