My family has been making green bean casserole for the holidays since I can remember. My mom makes the same recipe, year after year. Don’t get me wrong, mom’s green bean casserole is delicious… but this year I wanted to add a twist and make it a bit different. I’ve been playing around in the kitchen to come up with a recipe I know my family will love! I can’t wait until Thanksgiving to share it with them and get their feedback! Until then, you get a sneak peek! Green bean casserole with a twist – add a twist to your holiday this year!
Personally, I am a huge fan of mushrooms and onions. Actually most people in my family are so I knew this was where I needed to start when it came to putting a twist on our casserole. I added some fresh mushrooms and onions, sour cream and cheese and what I got in return was love! 😉
Green Bean Casserole with a Twist
I, of course, used the three most common ingredients in the traditional green bean casserole and then added a bit of my own twist! These were the ingredients I used for my twisted green bean casserole:
- 2 cans Del Monte® French Style Green Beans – drained
- 1 cup button mushrooms sliced
- 1/2 medium vidalia onion
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 can Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
- 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 2 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese
- 1 cup French’s® Crispy Fried Onions
- 1 tbsp. butter
- salt and pepper to taste
(I would suggest doubling this recipe for a holiday meal. This was made for my family of five, three of those five being small children.)
In a large mixing bowl combine the drained green beans, mushroom and onion mixture, sour cream, Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup, Worcestershire sauce, 1 cup of cheddar cheese and salt and pepper. Stir ingredients until evenly combined.
Grease a 9×13 baking pan and spread mixture evenly. Sprinkle the top with the remaining 1 cup of cheddar cheese and the French’s® Crispy Fried Onions.
This year in our family we are celebrating a few new babies and we have one family member who has gone off to serve in the military. Those of us who can make it to Thanksgiving will be gathering and enjoying our time together and those who can’t join us will be nearby in our hearts and thoughts.
Because of the various family changes occurring this year I thought it would be the perfect time for a switch in our traditional recipes. My mom, sisters and I always get together and have a baking party the night before our holiday gathering. We’ve done it for years and this year I can’t wait to share my new creation with them.
This is my twist on the traditional green bean casserole, how would you twist it up?
