One of my favorite Thanksgiving side dishes gets an update.
There’s a lot that can be said about the humble Green Bean Casserole. LOTS. And I’ve seen some pretty serious arguments about what can and can’t b
e in the dish. To me, Green Bean Casserole must include 3 things… cream of mushroom soup, canned green beans, and fried onions. You’re welcome to throw whatever else in there, but it’s gotta have those 3 things in my opinion.
You are welcome to make your own cream of mushroom soup. You are welcome to use fresh green beans. And you can make your own fried onions – or even use fried shallots. Go on with ya bad self. I bet it’s going to be delicious. That’s just not what I want in mine. But if you want to take that classic version and kick it up a notch – or three – man, do I have a recipe for you. I add fresh mushrooms for even more umami flavor and add… wait for it… BACON! Yes, I love the smoky flavor that bacon adds to this dish and it complements the mushrooms beautifully! I’ve always had a love affair with the bacon and mushrooms combo. read more at southernbite.com
