Green bean casserole, a side-dish stalwart of the Thanksgiving table since the 1950s and still going strong today, is often billed as 'the ultimate comfort food'.
Making green bean casserole is about as easy and rewarding as it gets when it comes to a hug from within. Think tender green beans tossed in a delicate creamy sauce, baked to perfection with a golden cheese and crispy onion topping, and served alongside a succulent turkey.
Keep your recipe store-cupboard simple and stick to the original 1950s invention, using cooked green beans, tinned cream of mushroom soup, and french fried onions, or, try making green your bean casserole from scratch. If you really want to make the flavours sing, make a deep and flavoursome mushroom soup married with freshly blanched green beans, topped off with home-fried onions.
