Uncle Greg's Green Bean Casserole

Fran Murray


Ever since my older brother, Greg, made green bean casserole from scratch for Thanksgiving, the Campbell's soup version just won't do! It really isn't that much trouble and it sure tastes wonderful!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Fresh ingredients make this green bean casserole shine! The fresh green beans are cooked perfectly. A mix of broth, cream, and wine, mixed with the mushrooms, creates a creamy mixture that beats anything you'd find in a can. Top with the delicious crunchy topping and you have a green bean casserole no one will pass up. The Test Kitchen
