Here’s my second Thanksgiving recipe.
I know there are a few different varieties of green bean casserole. This is the one I use:
2 cans green beans (drained)
3/4 cup milk
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1/8 tsp pepper
Mix together into casserole dish.
1 can of French fried onions
Stir in half of the onions into the casserole. Set aside the rest for later.
Bake uncovered at 350 for 30 minutes.
Remove casserole after 30 minutes and top the rest of the onions onto the casserole. Bake 5 more minutes.
When I think of my family’s Thanksgiving food traditions, I automatically think of three staple foods: Green Bean Casserole, Sweet Potato Casserole and Ambrosia Salad. Those are the three foods I always make at Thanksgiving, no matter where we have our meal! I do make the green bean casserole many times throughout the year, in fact, we are having it today because it’s my daughter’s 14th birthday and she requested it. Now, the sweet potatoes and ambrosia I only make for Thanksgiving. I’m not sure why. Maybe so we don’t get used to them and have it to look forward to on only one day per year.
I still have to shop for my ingredients. I’m crazy for not having gone to the grocery store yet! I’m sure the store won’t be too crazy, right??
I pulled my recipes out and plan to share them today. I will share on three separate posts starting with Sweet Potato Casserole on this post.
2 big cans of sweet potatoes
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup margarine
1 cup coconut
1 tsp salt
Directions: Mix altogether and put in casserole dish. Cover with the topping.
1 cup chopped nuts
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup oats
1/2 cup butter
Mix together and place on top of casserole.
Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes.
Enjoy! I love this recipe!
