Takes a LONG time to french cut fresh green beans, and to chop a couple pounds of mushrooms and crisp up some onions... The end result is worth it, though.

For home, it's different. I make home made cream of mushroom soup( freakin easy-google), flash crisp heat trimmed greens beans, minced onions, I deep fry 3/4 home mage onion rings(panko). Green beans on bottom of casserole, slowly add a limited amount of soup, bake 20ish mgmt, pull out, then top with onion rings, heat through. I like that for home.

9. Only at Thanksgiving.

And only if the onions are super crunchy (I hate onions that actually taste like onions) and the rest of it isn't too soupy. The traditional Thanksgiving dish that I really hate is that nasty, gooey concoction of sweet potatoes and marshmallows.

10. The inventor of the casserole just died late last month...

OCT. 24, 2018

RIP, Inventor of the Green-Bean Casserole


Dorcas Reilly with a huge fan. Photo: Courtesy of Campbell Soup Company


By Chris Crowley

Dorcas Reilly, who invented one of 20th-century Americaís classic dishes with her green-bean casserole, passed away on October 15 at the age of 92. The dish (originally known as the green-bean bake) was created in 1955, and like a lot of classics from that era, it was the product of a corporate test kitchen.

A graduate of Drexelís home-economics program, Reilly was a supervisor for Campbellís Home Economics Department. The dish was, after much testing, her teamís six-ingredient answer to the APís request for an easy side recipe incorporating two then-ubiquitous ingredients, Campbellís cream of mushroom soup and green beans. In 1960, five years after green-bean casserole was invented, Campbellís put the recipe on its cream of mushroom soup cans. And in 2002, the company donated Reillyís original recipe card to the National Inventors Hall of Fame.

Since the green-bean casseroleís invention, the inexpensive and uncomplicated dish has become deeply associated with the Midwest (a.k.a. the land of casseroles), to the point that people seem to think it originated there. Itís as much a part of Thanksgiving as cranberry sauce, and in an obituary for Reilly posted to its website, Campbellís says that in excess of 20 million Americans cook the dish during the holiday. The company has also stated that a whopping 40 percent of its cream of mushroom soup is bought specifically to make the casserole.

13. I love it. I also make spinach and broccoli versions.

For the latter two, I use cream of celery soup or broccoli and cheese soup instead of cream of mushroom, or make my own white sauce. I also double up on the canned onions. I usually add shredded cheddar and sometimes sour cream, too.

I know... Unhealthy as hell. But my family loves the spinach version especially, and I only ever make it for holiday events it's been requested for or that I'm hosting.

I grew up near the Mushroom capital of the world. So you either love mushrooms or hate them.

I am in the love them camp. I like all of the ingredients, just not together. It was not on my holiday table until marriage number two.

23. I have never cared for it, the rare times I've had it.

Don't think my mom ever made it.

We always had green peas, sometimes green peas with pearl onions as the green vegetables. Mom always made brussel sprouts, but she was the only one who ate them.

And I think marshmallows in sweet potatoes is another abomination. I just open a can of sweet potatoes, warm them up, and serve. If I want them sweeter, I might sprinkle some brown sugar on top, but they are already sweet enough as is, so adding sugar is something I haven't done in years.

46. It's O.K.

I wouldn't make it in my home, but if served elsewhere I would eat it.

I think my issue is that I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to veggies--especially green veggies. I don't think they need that much. (I guess I have a "less is more" attitude.)

Also, on Thanksgiving, there are a lot of dishes that are creamy, filled or covered in butter, covered in gravy, etc.

One of my favorite green bean side-dishes is green beans sauteed in olive oil w/ cherry tomatoes, garlic and a little rosemary.

I've also enjoyed broccoli steamed w/ minced garlic cloves and lemon zest (with the juice of the lemon in the steaming water).

And kale sauteed in bacon fat, w/ the crispy bacon sprinkled on the top.

I don't judge people for what they like. You like what you like. I wholly recommend that everyone enjoy their holiday.

My recipe is a bit non-standard. I use fresh green beans and both fresh and dried mushrooms. The only thing that comes out of a can is the fried onions. Iíve made those from scratch before and have found it isnít really worth it.

At any rate itís a great dish that is popular in my house, but I wouldnít eat the version that uses canned soup and canned green beans.
