Green Bean Casserole

Posted in: Christmas, Thanksgiving, Vegetables,


On many tables across America this Thanksgiving will be a steaming dish of the traditional green bean casserole. This dish, for some, is a weeknight meal, but come Thanksgiving, this dish becomes the co-star for most holiday dinners (of course, no dish should outshine the Thanksgiving turkey ).

A medley of fresh green beans covered with creamy mushroom soup, under a blanket of crispy french fried onion, this recipe is easy and quick. Simply boil your cut green beans for a few minutes to allow them to soften. While the green beans often, mix together all of your ingredients. Next combine the softened green beans to the mixture of ingredients. Lastly, pour everything into a casserole dish and bake for 25 minutes.

This classic casserole can be baked in a traditional casserole dish, or you can bake some of the mixture in individual serving size baking dishes. Once it is out of the oven it is ready to be served, and more importantly, enjoyed.

Whether this is your first time, or your 50th, hosting, this Green Bean Casserole is a recipe you'll want to have on your Thanksgiving table year after year.
