Thanksgiving is right around the corner and yes, I’m ready. I am ready for this day only partially for the feast, but the other reason is because I love spending time with my friends and family. I love sitting together on the couch, warm drinks in hand, chatting and laughing about anything and everything that crosses our minds. I love the sound of excitement as distant family arrives at the door. I love hearing all of the kids running through the house in a tornado of play and I love the feeling of contentment as I am surrounded by the people I love, without the feeling of being rushed. I love the feeling of being together.
This year, I am so excited that I get to share our family Thanksgiving and this feeling of togetherness with all of you as well. So in order to get you prepared, I decided that I would share with you one of my families most beloved recipes of our Thanksgiving feast: gourmet green bean casserole.
This recipe is actually quite easy to make. Many of you have probably made something similar before. However, what makes this recipe different is its addition of cheese and bacon. Yep, I said it. . bacon.
So before we get started here is the recipe ingredients needed to make this dish.
– 1 cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
– 1/2 cup whole milk
– 2 cans of cut green beans
– 1 cup cheddar cheese
– 4-6 strips of cooked bacon, crumbled
– 1 small can french fried onions
– 1 container of fresh mushrooms – sliced
Creating this dish is easy, simply combine all of the ingredients (except for half of the french fried onions) in an 8×8 glass baking dish and stir to combine. Bake mixture at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until nice and bubbly. Remove from oven, top with remaining french fried onions and bake another 5 minutes to crisp top. Serve warm.
Mmm. . it’s so gooey and crunchy, all at the same time!
