Green Bean Casserole

Green beans in a thick sauce are in a skillet sprinkled with crispy fried onions.

Green bean casserole is a dish often associated with ‘Southern’ cuisine in United States of America and is eaten during Thanksgiving. This dish smothers green beans in a creamy sauce with mushrooms. 

It is such an easy and tasty side dish it can easily be used as a year-round camp cooking dinner. One highlight of this dish is the crispy fried onions that are sprinkled on top once the sauce has finished cooking. 

This recipe calls for canned beans and sauce which are quick and easy for camping. But if time and resources are available it may also be cooked it with fresh beans, a scratch cream sauce, and fresh mushrooms.
