In honor of the late Dorcas Reilly, inventor of America’s most iconic Thanksgiving side (that’d be green bean casserole, of course!), Chadwick Boyd created three updated versions. This one was inspired by his childhood holidays and crab stuffed mushroom caps. It calls for lump crab meat tossed in Old Bay Seasoning, lemon juice, and grated parmesan, and the classic fried onion garnish gets another hit of Old Bay for extra flavor. He suggests doubling this recipe, as it goes fast.

For the other two takes, see this Mushroom Puff Pastry Green Bean Casserole recipe and this Chili Garlic Green Bean Casserole recipe. Get Chadwick’s Pumpkin Chai Slab Pie recipe too (and don’t forget the bourbon vanilla whipped cream).
