Around the holidays, a classic and a favorite dish of many people is green bean casserole. This dish is simple and yet hearty and it makes a great accent dish to almost anything else that could be rolled out onto the table. Many people tend to follow their grandparents and great-grandparents recipes for this wonderful dish, but many more have decided to go with a variation on the classic.
French’s (the company who also makes mustard) has released a recipe that rivals even the best of grandma’s ability in the kitchen. They make subtle changes to their version and allow you the ability to smudge here and there for whatever you want to add a little more of. There is really no set way to make green bean casserole, but using the guidelines that French’s has published, you can be sure that it will be a party favorite among everyone who attends.
To complete the recipe for six servings you will need about 11 ounces of cream of mushroom soup, the best is Campbell’s as it offers the best consistency, 3/4 cup of milk, and 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper. Mix all of these ingredients together thoroughly and then stir in 18 oz. of green beans, coating them very well. Finally, the recipe calls for 2/3 cup of French’s fried onions to be mixed in and baked at 350 degrees (or until hot clear through). However, to add a bit more crunch and flavor you can use a full cup at this point and then another full cup (instead of another 2/3 cup) when you pull it out and top it with the fried onions. In any event, after you top it off remember to bake it for another five minutes or so to get that lustrous golden color to the onions.
