25 Days of Holiday Goodies Day 15: Green Bean Casserole

Several of you may (or may not) have seen this picture following the Canadian Thanksgiving fun:

That’s not this recipe.  That’s a version of the Campbell’s soup green bean casserole recipe.

This recipe came from Vintage Vicksburg, a cookbook one of my best friends (who knows how obsessed I am with cookbooks, particularly “Junior League”-type cookbooks) bought me for Christmas one year.

In thumbing through the book, this is the recipe that my mom and I decided we had to try.

It is not open a few cans of stuff and call it done.  It is more labor-intensive (and wallet-intensive).  But…it is worth it.

 2 (10 ounce) packages French-style green beans (frozen)

1 small onion, chopped

6 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons flour

1 1/3 cup half-and-half

1 (3 ounce) can sliced mushrooms

2/3 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

1 (8 ounce) can sliced water chestnuts

16 ounces shredded cheddar cheese, divided

cubed bread

1/4 butter, melted

Cook green beans according to package.  Drain.  Saute onion in melted butter.  Add flour and mix well.  Add half-and-half, mushrooms, salt, soy sauce, black pepper, Tabasco, and water chestnuts.  Add green beans and half of the shredded cheese.  Pour into a 2-quart casserole.  Cover with remaining cheese and bread cubes.  Pour melted butter over top.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Makes 8 servings.

And here’s the printable:
