Marguerite's Green Bean Casserole

As the holidays are closing in on us my mind starts working in overdrive trying to figure out what new recipe I want to try, what family favorites do I need to plan for and exactly how many people will I be feeding.....the more the merrier if you ask me!

When it comes to Thanksgiving (let's just start with the one that chronologically comes first) our menu is pretty set.  We like to pretend that each year we are going to try something new, but in all honesty we know what we like, we know what the family enjoys and why mess with what works?  

One such dish that immediately comes to mind when thinking about that coveted meal is my aunts Green Bean Casserole....that's right, I capitalize that because it is just that important!  I think this could easily be one of my favorite traditional sides of all time....for lie!

If you are in search of something that you cannot mess up, that your family and friends will love, that you need to be absolutely certain will be a hit, just quit looking and add these ingredients to your grocery list.  

I promise, even your mother-in-law will love it!

Marguerite's Green Bean Casserole
4 cans french style green beans
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/8 teaspoon Tabasco
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 brick Velveeta cheese
1 can fried onions
1 can sliced water chestnuts
Boil the green beans with a teaspoon of salt to heat through.  Strain the beans and set aside.  
Mix the soup, salt, butter, soy sauce and Tabasco together.  
In a casserole dish layer the green beans, water chestnuts, soup mixture and Velveeta.  
Repeat this layer and then top with fried onions.  
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Serve immediately.
Pin It!
