I wasn't raised eating this casserole on Thanksgiving Day, which begs the question,
"Who else wasn't?!"
Now that we've had a few on our own, it was just within the last few years that green bean casserole became a staple at Thanksgiving dinner. I am assuming Travis' side of the family always had it and I must have picked it up there, because seriously?
It is so good. And Thanksgiving just wouldn't be the same without it.
I've seen some fancy recipes for this dish. Some add soy sauce, some add Parmesan cheese, among other things. But, I like to keep it simple and the best recipe I've had (and maybe the only one I've had) is from the back of a can.
Del Monte's Green Bean Casserole. You can find that here. I almost always use just a little more french fried onions, although typing those very words brought on the heartburn, so maybe not so much this year.
Oh, and do go with the french-cut green beans. It's not a traditional dish without them.
