I have so many warm memories of Thanksgivings past. Today we’re going to discuss the 3 Step Green Bean Casserole Recipe that is part of so many of them. Growing up we traditionally did Christmas at home, but would travel for Thanksgiving. We typically would spend Thanksgiving day splitting time between both of my maternal grandparents in Carlsbad. Which meant A LOT of eating. For several years leading up to my teens we would also do a pre-Thanksgiving/Christmas party at my great aunt’s home in Santa Teresa. Her huge home would be packed to the gills with people, even ballooning onto the porch overlooking the golf course. In addition to eating Thanksgiving dinner there would be a gift exchange. All of the children present were also allowed to choose one ornament to take home if they chose. I still have mine – a carousel snow globe.
Before all of the eating and various events for the day we would always say grace. My cousins and I were way too busy playing to bother slowing down enough to realize that everyone had linked hands throughout the house. We were in the middle of a committed and competitive game of hide and seek when an adult hollered down the hall. Apparently Shandyn (the cousin I was closest in age with) and I were hidden at opposite ends of the hallway. Neither of us saw each other as we sprinted to the living room. Though we were close in age, I was dwarfed by height and after colliding with so much force I had the worst bloody nose.
After being way too dramatic, I eventually recovered. Later that evening as my relatives washed dishes and packaged up the leftovers I questioned what one of them was. It was present during all holiday meals, but I wasn’t sure what it was. My great aunt informed me that it was of course funeral casserole. When I asked why that was it’s name was she joked that it was a dish present at every funeral she’d ever been too. Most people know it by another name, today we’re going to share our green bean casserole recipe.
Funeral casserole (or green bean casserole) is incredible easy and cheap to make. It takes just 3 steps before you can enjoy the deliciousness!
Begin by mixing cream of mushroom soup, milk, soy sauce, pepper and green beans in a casserole dish. Then, mix in half of your can of french fried onions.
