Green Bean Casserole Recipe Needed

Postby OldUsedParts » Thu Nov 04, 2021 9:53 am

My Grand Daughter asked me if I had a good Green Bean Casserole Recipe and I did not. However, I told her that I would post it on TBBQF and see what the Talented Members might have. So if anyone has a Green Bean Casserole Recipe that they would RECOMMEND, please post it here if you will.

TIA,
OUP

Parts, I just like the plain old Campbells version with mushroom soup and french fried onions, but some people sneer at that.
One year I tried a slightly different version that I found at Aldi's and everyone really enjoyed it. If I have done it correctly, here
is a link to the recipe.

As in "back of the Fried Onions box" and/or "back of the Campbells soup can" ? That's the version I like! :D

Yup. I read the recipe, and it seems interesting, what with bacon, corn, cream cheese, and mayo, and I'd definitely try it....but it's not Thanksgiving.

With my taste buds in the condition that they've become from living and eating in the South, I think that I'd Fry my own Own-Yawns instead of using the canned variety and also use French Own-Yawn Soup instead of Mushyrooms.

It's gonna be interesting how Harlee does with it and I can't wait for a Post-Thanksgiving Update. :rose:

thanks again,
:tup: :salut:

LOL I agree. My gang seems to get tired of it, though. So I'll skip it for a year or so, then slip it back on the menu. Then everyone says
"I forgot how good this is". :dont:

Not surprised - I've noticed that a lot of things I take shortcuts on, you do the "right" way. LOL Maybe I'm just a lil lazy. :lol:
I'm not sure about the French onion soup, tho. :scratch: If you or Harlee try it that way, let us know how it is.
This really is a pretty tasty dish, but like Sailer said, it's not the real thing for Thanksgiving - at least for those of us who are used to our version.

BETTER LATE THAN never on this!

Hj's Original Green Beans Supreme

1 lb. green beans de-stemed washed cut or
   sliced French style - set aside

Using a large skillet or pot fry~
½ to ¾ lbs. bacon cut up* ñ reserve 2 Tbsps.
 of the grease. Remove bacon to paper towels.*

In a large skillet or pot the bacon was fried in add ñ saute with the reserved 2 Tbsps. bacon grease with ~
1 to 2 Tbsps. butter
1 onion yellow small to medium slice or dice
2 to 3 garlic cloves diced fine
1) 8 oz. mushroom pkg. white sliced
  All seasoned with~
salt - pepper - Accent to taste 
Saute about 5 minutes - stir
Add green beans - mix well ñ add
either water or chicken broth - just covering the beans ñ cook till all just tender - not much water or broth will be left.
Add in ñ stir~
¼ lb. Velveeta cheese in cubes to melt
With fresh basil* chopped with alittle more butter - about ¼ c. milk ñ cooked bacon broken up.
STIR WELL-adding fresh basil ñ more seasoning of garlic grandular this time if  needed with salt- pepper -Accent (not much will be needed) to taste.  Stir well ñ simmer about 5 to 7 minutes to consistency you want. NOT TO THICK OR TO THIN.

*Note  can fry bacon whole or cut up or just add raw bacon to the pot ñ cook when adding the beans ..but will have more grease with bacon being raw ~ however it's tastier ñ calories. LOL

*Basil - dried or fresh is best I would use  about 1 tablespoon dried ñ I use fresh rolled up ñ cut about 1palmful of fresh large leaves or to UR taste.

Mushrooms - slice thin - not super thin
I use Smoked Apple bacon

If sauce is too thick add more milk or alittle chicken broth .. if to thin just cook down more.

*Only use Velveeta cheese can - use alittle more than ¼ lb. 

1 lb. gr. beans washed remove stems* slice like French style or just slant cut.  Can use 2) 15 oz. cans ..however..drain well ñ rinse off extra salt the manufacture co. adds to cans.

*Milk is a must at the last part with the cheese but cook the beans ñ mushrooms ñ etc. in chicken broth or ½ tsp. of Better Than Chicken Base mixed with water works well now- instead of water.  Remember this has salt in it ñ might want to hold back on salting anything till the end. 

**Veletta cheese ñ basil are a must in this dish.
Over the years I try to cook easier ñ using easier products like the Roasted Better Than Chicken Base ñ sometimes  using garlic granular. Using one containers to cook all also.  I do this recipe on top of the stove  as not to heat up the house. Using milk - doesn't matter if whole or non fat  ..it just gives it that creamier taste other than water or chicken broth. If U don't have milk - it still tastes great.  I never tried sour cream in place of milk but one day I will ñ NOT a  ¼ cup ..I'd just go slow ñ see how the texture is ñ taste. 

SORRY -  the older I become - the more chatter I am.
This is great to stuff big thick center pork chops ..making chops like a boat.  Brown OR grill chops seasoned WITHOUT THE STUFFING  - having the slit already cut for into the chop for the stuffing. HAVE stuffing already cooked ñ heated to stuff for serving. I do this with chicken also.  Sometimes just adding the stuffing ñ baking it all together in a shallow baking dish.  I make a great green chile mix as a stuffing also.

CAN use asparagus in place green beans.
A mistake is sometimes a great creation
