This green bean casserole is considered the ultimate comfort food and one of the most popular side dishes served on Thanksgiving in America. The original recipes calls for canned green beans mixed with cream of mushroom soup, topped with French fried onions, but many variations have evolved to include other ingredients. Most holiday meals (especially Thanksgiving and Christmas) wouldn't be complete without this green bean dish. This dish can be prepared early in the day or even a couple of day ahead of time.

History: Green bean casserole was invented in 1955 by Dorcas Reilly and her team at the Campbell Soup Company Test Kitchen in Camden, New Jersey to encourage the use of their soups. Campbell’s now estimates 40% of the Cream of Mushroom soup sold in the United States goes into making green bean casserole. According to historians, Doracas Reilly presented the original recipe card to the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2002.

Recipe Type: Green Beans
Yields: 6 to 8 servings
Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 45 min
 

Ingredients:

3 (14.5-ounce) cans French-style green beans>, undrained
4 uncooked bacon slices, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped onion
1 green bell pepper, cored, seeded, and chopped
1/2 cup chopped pimiento, drained
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1 (2-ounce) can mushrooms, undrained
1/2 pound processed American cheese, cut into cubes
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup crushed Ritz crackers or canned onion rings (your choice)
Butter


Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, cook green beans with bacon pieces and onion long enough to cook bacon and season beans; remove from heat. Drain bean mixture and place into an ungreased 2-quart casserole dish.

In the same saucepan over medium heat, sauté bell pepper and pimiento in butter or margarine. Add mushroom soup, mushrooms, American cheese, and Worcestershire sauce. Cook, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted and mixture is thick. Remove from heat and pour over beans.

Sprinkle the top with crushed Ritz crackers or onions rings and dot with butter. NOTE: My family likes the onion rings on top.

Bake, uncovered, 30 minutes or until top is golden brown and thoroughly heated. Remove from oven and serve.
