Creamy Green Bean Casserole From Scratch
If you’ve been checking your calendar you may have noticed that Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away. The perfect time to create a guest list and plan your menu.
This Green Bean Casserole From Scratch is super easy to make, with a creamy interior and a crunchy topping. I’ve fancied it up by adding fresh parsley, lots of onions, and savory Gruyere cheese.
I recommend saving those condensed soup cans you’ve been hiding in your pantry for a Nuclear Holocaust and stick to fresh ingredients for this recipe. It makes a huge difference in flavor and texture.
Generally, for Thanksgiving shopping, I used to go to the grocery store for the ingredients, the liquor store for the drinks, the houseware store to replace the wine glasses the cat broke last year, the party store for the centerpieces and so on.
That’s four stores and counting. No wonder I’m tired before the cooking even starts. I’m sure I’m not alone in this.
Almost half of Americans (41%) find hosting Thanksgiving dinner more stressful than asking their boss for a raise. All the shopping, cooking and decorating, can be intense.

This looks awesome! My kids have an aversion to mushrooms, so I like that this doesn’t have cream of mushroom soup. If I were to omit the portobello mushrooms, would everything remain the same? Like melt butter then add onions, parsley, etc?
Of course Valeigh! Just omit the mushrooms and follow the recipe as is… Let me know how it comes out!
