Green Bean Cassarole, as seen on Food Network’s The Kitchen Thanksgiving Live, Special
We talk about reminiscence and recreating family recipes all the time when cooking and the green bean casserole is, for sure, a Thanksgiving classic. Oddly, this is a dish my mother NEVER made when I was growing up. I think I tasted it for the first time when I was about 30 years old. I know the classic base uses store- bought soup mix and fried onions. If you can cut the onions thinly using a Mandolin slicer, that makes the task easier. Of course, store bought fried onions can also be a good shortcut if you want to save time. It is also surprising how rewarding it can be to make it all from scratch!
