Foodie Friday: Green Bean Casserole

Happy Foodie Friday!

Oh boy oh boy, I am so excited to share with you one of my absolute favorite Thanksgiving dinner recipes!  I grew up in the south. Now, I’m not sure if green bean casserole is a southern thing, or I just think it is because it’s in a casserole dish.  Regardless of whether it’s a regional “thing”, I strongly suggest everyone to try this. 

When it comes to green bean casserole, I like it just the way my mom made it growing up. I’ve tried “healthier” versions and “fancy” versions over the years. Never turns out right. To me, pouring in that can of condensed cream of mushroom soup, and sprinkling those fried onions on top is just about as good as it gets for a Thanksgiving meal.

Let me know how you like it!

Bon Appetit!

  • For Broccoli Casserole:Substitute 4 cups cooked broccoli florets for the green beans.
  • For Cheese Lovers:Stir in 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese with the soup. Omit the soy sauce. Sprinkle with an additional 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese when adding the remaining onions.
  • To add a festive touch:Stir in 1/4 cup chopped red pepper with the soup.
  • To add crunch: Add 1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds to the onion topping.
  • For bacon lovers: Add 2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled, to the bean mixture.
