Patti’s Southern Green Bean Casserole


This is the first recipe in the 2009 Thanksgiving dinner menu we have planned for our family here in good Ole Saint Mary’s County.

Green Bean Casserole is a truly southern tradition at our house. I have adapted this recipe to suit my family’s taste. I hope some of you will give it a try. Just maybe it will become a tradition at your house on Thanksgivings in the future.


Patti’s Southern Green Bean Casserole:


2 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup

8 cups cooked green beans

1 teaspoon pepper

1 cup milk

2 cups French fried onions

6 slices bacon fried crisp and crumbled

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix soup, milk and pepper in a 2-quart casserole dish. Stir in beans, bacon and 1 cup of the fried onions. Bake for about 30 minutes. Top with the remaining 1 cup fried onions and bake about 5 more minutes, until onions are lightly browned.

I hope ya’ll give this a try and let me hear from you.
