Green bean casserole

From Cookipedia

Green bean casserole is a casserole consisting of green beans, canned cream of mushroom soup and French fried onions. The recipe may also call for ground black pepper and/or soy sauce.


Green bean casserole was invented in 1955 by the Campbell Soup Company test kitchen under the leadership of Dorcas Reilly. Their goal was to come up with simple recipes using Campbell's products to promote the use and increased purchase of the company's products. It has since become a popular Thanksgiving side dish in the United States. The casserole is typical of 1950s American food in that it smothers vegetables in a thick cream sauce. Green bean casserole however can be made with any brand of canned cream of mushroom soup available, or a homemade cream of mushroom soup, for the flavour the cook desires.
