green bean casserole

It’s time again for the green bean casserole to make its star appearance.

This dish was created by Campbell test kitchen manager Dorcas Reilly in 1955, using only  six ingredients: canned or fresh green beans, Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup, soy sauce, black pepper, milk, and French-fried onions.

The dish has indeed stood the test of time, and it is said that during the holiday season, an estimated 30 million households will continue to enjoy this family favorite.

It is also a favorite in our home. I prefer to stick to the original recipe, without any addition or variation. I’ve made it using both cooked fresh beans or canned beans. And somehow, the one made with canned beans always tastes better.
