Green bean casserole has been a fixture of my family’s Thanksgiving table for years. But when Thanksgiving is held at my house, I like to find new ways of creating traditional dishes. Here is my spin on the classic dish…
GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE
4 cups green beans, fresh or frozen
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 1/2 cups shredded Tillamook Monterey Jack Cheese
1 1/3 cup fried onions
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine green beans, cream of mushroom soup, 1 cup shredded Tillamook Monterey Jack, 1 cup fried onions and a dash of salt and pepper. Pour mixture into a baking dish that has been greased with Tillamook Butter. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Add 1/3 cup fried onions and ½ cup shredded Tillamook Monterey Jack to the top of the dish and bake for an additional 5 minutes, until the fried onions are golden brown.
