What is your all time favorite Thanksgiving Side Dish?
I think my all time favorite dish would be green bean casserole. Most years my brother and mom make the classic recipe with mushroom soup. This year we are on our own for Thanksgiving, so I decided to change it up a bit.
1 (10oz) can cream of mushroom soup
3/4 cup milk
2 (9 oz) pkgs frozen french cut green beans
1 1/3 cup Frenches fried onions original flavor
4 slices bacon
1/2 cup crimini mushrooms chopped
1/2 cup shitaki mushrooms chopped
1/8 tsp pepper
Thaw out the green beans.
Slightly freeze the bacon for easy slicing. Cut up into 1/4 inch slices. In a medium sauce pan cook bacon until crispy on medium heat. Remove bacon and drain all but 1 tablespoon fat. Add in mushrooms and cook until they slightly change color (about 5 min).
In a medium bowl mix soup, milk, and pepper. Gently stir in green beans, bacon, mushrooms, and 2/3 cup onions. Pour into a 2 qt casserole dish.
Bake at 350F for 30 minutes, or until hot.
Top with remaining 2/3 cups onions. Bake for an additional 5 minutes or until onions are golden.
