Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I am so excited! My sister and I have taken over the Thanksgiving cooking duties for the past few years, and we have already started planning our menu for this year.
We both have a great love for cooking and baking, and we really enjoy experimenting in the kitchen, and putting our own spin on recipes. It’s always fun to be adventurous with food and see what we can come up with. Sometimes it doesn’t really turn out how we envisioned it, but there are a lot of times when we are just blown away by the amazing flavors we can create. Last year, my sister made an awesome stuffing that had cranberries and mushrooms in it, which you wouldn’t really think would work well together, but it was absolutely delicious!
This year, I wanted to try to put my own spin on one of our favorite Thanksgiving dishes, Green Bean Casserole. Our whole family loves the traditional Green Bean Casserole recipe, but I was experimenting with some different flavors this week, and came up with a tasty twist that I know everyone is going to love!
The traditional Green Bean Casserole recipe is made with Del Monte® Green Beans, French’s® French Fried Onions, and Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup (also milk, pepper and soy sauce, which are not pictured below).
You’ll still find all of those tasty ingredients in this recipe, but I have added a few additional ingredients as well.
If you love garlic as much as my family does, then you are going to love this recipe because there is a lot of garlic flavor in it! While it packs quite a garlic punch, it’s not too overwhelming. I think it is just right. If you find that it is too much garlic for your family, you can certainly cut down on the garlic measurements a little bit to find what works for you.
And if it wasn’t enough to add a whole bunch of garlic to this recipe, I also added in some sharp cheddar cheese, because who doesn’t love cheese?!
I just love the salty crunch from the French’s® Fried Onions. They are so yummy, and add so much great flavor. I usually have to exercise quite a bit of will power when making Green Bean Casserole, because I find myself eating these right out of the can!
