Cooking Corner: Green Bean Casserole

green bean casserole 1With Thanksgiving just around the corner, many of you are looking forward to seeing family, watching rivalry football and of course all of the yummy food! I’m not a big fan of turkey but I love all of the wonderful sides that accompany the meal. We always have mashed potatoes, sweet potato souffle, collard greens, and my mom’s fantastic dressing. However, one of my favorite side items is green bean casserole. I’ve tried lots of recipes, but my favorite is one that I based on the recipe found on the French’s fried onions can.  Every time I make it people ask for the recipe. If you were in the cooking class, you learned many skills that will help you create this awesome dish for your family this Thanksgiving. Make sure you ask permission from your parents first, but give this a try.  I know your family will love it!  Let me know how it turns out!
