There are a few classics that you simply don’t mess with when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner. Believe me on this one. Case in point? Green bean casserole. I’ve tried making my own french fried scallions. FAIL. I’ve tried making my own substitute for cream of mushroom soup. FAIL. Friends, don’t do it. Don’t try to be a Thanksgiving hero with this traditional side dish. Take it from me, I’ve found only one – and one way only! – to improve on the original. Enter my Twice the Onion Green Bean Casserole.
Who are we kidding? We all know why we love this turkey day staple. Those crispy, fried onions that sit on top. All the flavor, all the crunch. They’re definitely the star of the show. Well, they really are now in my Twice the Onion Green Bean Casserole. I’ve followed the traditional recipe but upped the amount of onion deliciousness. Simple enough, right? When someone noted that it’s the best green bean casserole they’ve ever had, it was a nudge that I needed to share this simple twist with all of you. You’re welcome.

We love this Twice the Onion Green Bean Casserole so much that it’s now a year round side dish and no longer regulated to just our Thanksgiving table. It’s just as amazing and comforting for a Sunday dinner as it is in November!
