Same here. I only make it once a year so why not go with the traditional recipe. We also have the wack'em crescent rolls too. It's just not Thanksgiving with out em.

We call them whop'ems here. Must be a regional thing.

No offence taken Steve.....I don't even know why I mentioned Velveeta....I haven't had it in the house in years, but I definitely do use Cheeze Whiz sometimes

I have only had it once made by someone who brought it to my house and I made it once by following the recipe on the Campbell's site. Neither time was there any cheese involved.

Classic Green Bean Casserole (click)

1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup (Regular, 98% Fat Free or Healthy Request®)
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon soy sauce
Dash ground black pepper
4 cups cooked cut green beans

1 1/3 cups French's® French Fried Onions
  • Stir the soup, milk, soy sauce, black pepper, beans and 2/3 cup onions in a 1 1/2-quart casserole.
  • Bake at 350°F. for 25 minutes or until the bean mixture is hot and bubbling. Stir the bean mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining onions.
  • Bake for 5 minutes or until the onions are golden brown.

I don't use an actual recipe, I kind of make it up as I go. But, it's very similar to this one:

Philly Green Bean Casserole - Kayti OHanen's Recipes

The one thing I do different is using whole cream, rather than milk (yeah, lots of calories but it is, after all, a once-a-year holiday dish). And I use Panko bread crumbs on top, because they add a nice crunch.

I cook almost everything from scratch, but I do occasionally use canned cream soups in recipes, especially when I need to put something together quickly or when I'm tired of listening to my kids complain about what I cook. They almost never like the stuff that has complex flavors and requires a lot of prep time. They'd much rather have processed stuff like recipes made with cream soups so I do humor them sometimes and don't really mind the flavor.

So I don't have anything fundamentally against cream soups and I do like the green bean casserole. I don't love it, but it says "Thanksgiving" to me since my mom almost always brings it to our Thanksgiving dinner.

i never really liked it when one of my family brought it as their thanksgiving dish, so i just never made room for it on my plate. if no one notices, no one's feelings get hurt. there were so many other things to eat that a little deception was easy.

but thankfully, my eldest sister started making a dish with steamed fresh stringbeans, fresh savory, s&p, and a drizzle of very good evoo. it's delicious and good for you!

Smile I like Green Bean Casserole

I like Green Bean Casserole, and I like mushrooms, some cream of mushroom doesn't bother me. That said, GBC can get mushy - It definitely needs some crunch or some texture (probably why I like those french fried onions). I've never made it, but it looks pretty easy. I wouldn't mind adding some sauteed onions and mushrooms. Maybe even green onions if not sauteed onions.

If I wanted to add cheese, maybe parm/romano, or even pepperjack for some kick...

The gears in my brain are turning...
