with thanksgiving coming up, i thought i would share my favorite green bean casserole recipe!
two years ago, it was my first time participating in thanksgiving where i didn’t live with the hosts haha, so i was so pumped to be able to bring my own dish to contribute! i was asked to bring green bean casserole. so, i did what any first timer would do, and went to pinterest.
it’s not your typical green bean casserole recipe- there’s bacon in it!! but, everyone absolutely loved it! it was a nice change from the traditional recipe but it’s still “traditional” enough.
and this year, my grandma, who has published many cookbooks and had a cooking column in her local paper for over 30 years told me over the phone that i better make my green bean casserole recipe this year. and to me, that’s a big compliment coming from her. so, i thought i’d share it so maybe your family could be blessed by it this thanksgiving (also, it is just me or is it crazy that thanksgiving is so soon?!).
here is the recipe link!
i’ll break it down into simple steps here:
- preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit & spray a 9 X 13 pan. set aside.
- cook 6 strips of bacon until they’re nice & crispy. drain all but 2 tbsp of the the grease and then crumble. add 1/2 finely diced onion to the pan. cook until the onions are translucent. then add 1 1/2 cups of chopped mushrooms (i don’t add mushrooms). continue cooking and add 3 cloves of garlic. add in 2 cans of condensed cream of mushroom soup (undiluted). now, you can add your bacon crumbles back in. stir it all to combine it. then, add I cup of shredded cheese and 1/4 cup milk. once the cheese is melted, add in salt and pepper to taste and fold in 4 cans of drained, cut green beans.
- pour the mixture into your 9 X 13 sprayed pan. before you bake it, add 1 1/2 cups of french fried onions to the top.
- bake it for 30 minutes.
- share & enjoy with family!
have a wonderful thanksgiving in a couple weeks!
