Ingredients

  • 28 ounce packages crescent roll sheets
  • 3/4 pound fresh green beans, rinsed, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6 ounces mushrooms, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken bone broth
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 cup Fried Onions
  • 2 tablespoons butter at room temperature

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
  2. Bring a large saucepan of water and 2 tablespoons of salt to a boil. Add the beans and blanch for 3 minutes. Drain and immediately place beans into a large bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Drain beans and set aside.
  3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat melt the butter. Add the mushrooms, shallot, salt and pepper and cook, stir occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic, thyme,and nutmeg and continue to cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle the 3 tablespoons of flour over mushrooms and cook for another minute. Add the broth, stirring constantly for about 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium-low and pour in the half-and-half and continue cooking 6 to 8 minutes until the mixture thickens, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
  5. In a small bowl mix the Fried Onions and butter until mixed well, set aside.
  6. While the mixture is cooling unroll the crescent sheets and cut each sheet in quarters, rolling the pieces to make squares. They do not have to be perfect.
  7. Place a heaping quarter of a cup of the bean mixture just off center of the square. Fold the dough over the filling to form a turnover. Seal the edges. Repeat with the reaming squares, placing the turnovers on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  8. Make an egg wash using 1 egg and 1 tablespoon of water. Brush each turnover with the egg wash and top with the fried onion butter mixture dividing it equally between the turnovers.
  9. Bake in preheat 375 degree oven for 12-15 minutes until the crescent are nicely browned.
  10. Remove from oven and serve.
