Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without this delectable side dish; the green bean casserole. This is not just an ordinary dish; for mere preparation and the actual dining experience spells tradition and family bonding; true enough this is how it’s done the American way. It is quite easy to prepare the green bean casserole recipe; as this has been handed down in every family from generation to generation. A very simple fix of this consists of green beans, fried fine slices of onions, and cream of delicious mushroom soup; this can be seasoned to taste with your favorite brand of soy sauce and ground black pepper.
This main inspiration for this authentic comfort food is to make a foodie masterpiece using these two ingredients that the Americans always had in their kitchen nook in the early 1950’s; the Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup and green beans. This sumptuous green bean casserole recipe was created by the Campbell Mushroom Company in early 1955. A talented team; spearheaded by Dorcas Reilly; a noted staff of the Home Economics Department of Campbell’s were behind the making of this popular side dish. Just recently, in the year 2002, Dorcas Reilly proudly presented this recipe card of the green bean casserole to the National Inventors Hall of Fame in Akron, Ohio; which in turn were greatly honoured by the gesture.
This; without doubt; completes every meal; especially during Thanksgiving. The turkey would definitely look stale without the green bean casserole alongside it. There are people who have innovated the recipe; but for most American families who enjoy its simple flavourful taste; the simpler the ingredients and the more basic the preparations; the better it goes.
For the simple green bean casserole recipe, you just need to prepare the following ingredients:
• 4 cups of cooked green beans
• 1 can of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup (any brand you prefer)
• 1/8 teaspoon of ground black pepper
• 1 1/3 cups of sliced French fried onions
• ½ cup of milk (any brand you prefer)
It’s pretty easy to prepare. Just mix all the ingredients together in a casserole pan; and then bake for about 25 minutes in 350 degrees farenheit and then sprinkle with the remaining French fried onions on top; and then bake for another 5 minutes or until the onions are golden brown; then serve hot.
