My Most Favorite Side Dish for EVERY Holiday Dinner

We all have those dishes we look forward to seeing on the Holiday Dinner Table.
Y'all know the ones I am talking about...... Homemade Mashed Potato's, Sweet Yams in Orange Sauce, Mom's Frog Eye Salad.....there are a hundreds of different recipes we all drool over.  As for ME, well it really isn't a fancy dish at all....very comforting and simple.
GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE!!!   Oh My Flipping Heck! I can never pass this side dish by.
It "calls" to me....this is the one time I actually fill the majority of my plate with a vegetable! (lol)
I make sure it is present at the major holiday meals. Most of the time I am the one to volunteer to bring it....thus making sure it was there! (lol) Now I do try to "lighten" it up a bit by using fat free soup and milk. It doesn't change the taste at all!

Green Bean Casserole
3 Cans of Cut Green Beans- drained
1 C. Fat Free Milk
1 tsp. Pepper
2 Cans of Fat Free Cream of Mushroom Soup
3 C. Fried Onions

Preheat oven to 350
Mix together the soup , milk and pepper. Add in the drained green beans plus 1 C. of the fried onions, mixed together.  Pour into a 2qt. baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes then add the remaining fried onions to the top and return to bake for another 10 minutes.

I love traditional dishes,

I love Green bean casserole but don't get to have it very often since I'm the only one in the house who does. Now you're making me want it desperately! Yum!
