What is your favorite food at Thanksgiving dinner?
Lord knows this is a good topic for me. I love food. I love Thanksgiving...and I especially love Thanksgiving food!
Our Thanksgiving takes place at my Granny's house. If you read one of my posts from last week, you know that my Granny is the best cook EVAH! She's better than the Pioneer Woman, for reals. She deserves her own cooking show. We've thought about compiling a collection of her recipes into a cookbook, but how do you do that with a person who cooks with a "little of this" and a "pinch of that"? I guess Granny's recipes will have to just continue to be passed down and enjoyed by her family. Lucky me!
So, since my Granny is such a stellar cook, she is in charge of all the important stuff like turkey, dressing, and gravy. As a side note, we have DRESSING, not STUFFING. It's a rule at the Barney house...no stuffing. The side dishes are left up to the rest of us...well, some of us. There are a couple of people and I won't mention any name *achem, V and mom* who
aren't allowed to don't really cook side dishes. My Aunt Bev makes the best broccoli and cheese casserole you have EVER tasted. She also makes some amazing hot rolls. Somebody makes mashed potatoes...there are a couple of people who are qualified to do that. (We take this food making business serious.) I like to believe that I am pretty good at making green bean casserole. I've confessed my LOVE of green beans on the blog before. I think that if you really love something, that kind of helps you to be good at it...so, I'm a good green-bean-casserole-maker!
Here's my recipe: (I prepare for a large family, so excuse the quantities. You may need to cut everything in half)
4 cans of green beans
2 cans of cream of mushroom soup
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup milk
1 large can of french fried onions
Worcestershire sauce (If you can say this correctly, I would like to give you some sort of award)
Combine green beans, soup, milk, worcestershire (to taste), black pepper (to taste), half of french friend onions and 1 cup of cheese. Put ingredients into baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes at 350. Then top with remaining cup of cheese and french friend onions and bake for an additional 10 minutes (cheese should be bubbling/melty).
Sometimes I even substitute the cheddar flavored french fried onions. It's delish!!
