Perfume in a Suitcase


Green Bean Casserole

Green Bean Casserole is probably my most favorite holiday dish.
I serve it at both Christmas and Thanksgiving. I have two recipes, and both require the crunchy onions on the top

My recipe that is super easy:

4 cans of cut green beans

2 cans of cream of mushroom soup

Mix those two ingredients together and put in a buttered casserole dish, cover it with foil, put in the oven at 350' until cooked through, about 30 minutes.  After you pull the dish out, take off the foil and top with the crunchy fried onions.  You can uses French's Onions or Trader Joe's.....LOVE Trader Joe's!!!

My second recipe for Green Bean Casserole

Make a béchamel sauce and add mushrooms....this is your cream of mushroom sauce.
Fresh green beans that you snip the tops and put in the crockpot with veggie stock or chicken stock and cook until tender on low.  A few hours.  Scoop beans out and put into the béchamel sauce and put into buttered casserole dish, heat in the oven until heated through...taste it..tee hee...if it's good it's done ...sprinkle with the fried green onions.

Salt and pepper everything the way you like :)
