Classic Green Bean Casserole – Campbell’s Struck Gold!

What’s special about the Campbell’s Classic Green Bean Casserole? It’s those little canned French-fried onions! To me they are terrible just out of the can but once they’re on the casserole, OMG! Can’t get enough.

Classic Green Bean Casserole

The green bean casserole was first created in 1955 by a team led by Dorcas Reilly who worked for the Campbell Soup Company in the home economics department.

They were attempting to create a dish made with ingredients found in most households at the time; green beans and Campbell’s cream of mushroom soup. Since the dish is now over 60 years old I think they succeeded!

This is the same recipe that my Mom made along with every other cook in the country! Mom always used the soy sauce for the extra zing. She also used canned green beans like the recipe calls for but I love this with fresh string beans too.

Other than the turkey, this casserole and the cranberry sauce with the can marks still on it or my fondest memories of Thanksgiving back in that time!

This might not be the best green bean casserole in the world but its great and it will remain on all my holiday menus!

Tips For Classic Green Casserole:

I like to use a little less milk than the recipe calls for so it comes out a little creamier, other than that I stick with this holiday classic recipe!
