Easy Thanksgiving Recipe

A few posts ago I shared one of my dark secrets…I CANT COOK!!!  I think it is more that I don’t like to cook.  But every so often I find myself in the kitchen preparing a dish for one of our family get together’s, Thanksgiving is one of em.  I usually try at all costs to stay out of the kitchen when the cooking is going on.  It seems to be a family joke.  Once I arrive to the hosts house (my momma’s) I hide with the kids.  This year I was asked to bring the green bean casserole.  This is the same dish I prepared last year.  I guess my family liked it!  Last Thanksgiving I had some complications with the recipe.  I remember my sister saying, “no one can ruin the Green Bean Casserole.  It is a safe recipe.”  Well lil did she know that I would be the first in history to ruin this all time favorite casserole.  I went thru two batches before I got it right.  This year I know I will be able to perfect the casserole dish and get it right the first time.

Here is my easy peasy Green Bean Casserole recipe (you can also get it from the back of the French’s Fried Onions box.)


*1 can Cream of mushroom soup

*3/4 cup of milk

*1/8 tsp black pepper

*2 cans of cut cooked green beans

*1 1/3 cups French’s Fried Onion

Mix the milk and the soup together, then add the pepper and the beans in the casserole dish.  Add 2/3 cup of onions.

Bake at 350 for 35 minutes

Stir and sprinkle the remaining onions on casserole and cook for 5 minutes
