On many tables across America this Thanksgiving will be a steaming dish of the traditional green bean casserole. This dish, for some, is a weeknight meal, but come Thanksgiving, this dish becomes the co-star for most holiday dinners (of course, no dish should outshine the Thanksgiving turkey ).

A medley of fresh green beans covered with creamy mushroom soup, under a blanket of crispy french fried onion, this recipe is easy and quick. Simply boil your cut green beans for a few minutes to allow them to soften. While the green beans often, mix together all of your ingredients. Next combine the softened green beans to the mixture of ingredients. Lastly, pour everything into a casserole dish and bake for 25 minutes.

This classic casserole can be baked in a traditional casserole dish, or you can bake some of the mixture in individual serving size baking dishes. Once it is out of the oven it is ready to be served, and more importantly, enjoyed.

Whether this is your first time, or your 50th, hosting, this Green Bean Casserole is a recipe you'll want to have on your Thanksgiving table year after year.

We'll make a green bean casserole. This is a pretty traditional American classic dish. So the first thing we need to do is cut our green beans into bit-sized pieces. So we're going to take few at a time, and then we're to cut them into about an inch length and set them aside in our bowl here.

Some types of green beans come trimmed, but if they're not trimmed, you'd want to cut off those little knobby ends that have a string attached to them. We don't have to do that here, so we'll just keep cutting them into about 1 inch segments.

We're going to cook the green beans now. In this recipe, you want to cook them until they're actually very soft. Crunchy-- no good in this recipe. All right, so let's add the beans to the water. Now, while the beans are cooking, we're going to get together the rest of the ingredients for the recipe.

Now, we need a mixing bowl to combine our ingredients in. We're going to start with the cream of mushroom soup. And we want to stir the milk. You want to make sure there are no lumps of the soup, so you want to mix it really well, smooth it out.

Now, we're going to add the pepper, mix that in. And the soy sauce is next. Add that to the mushroom mixture, stir it in. Last but not least is my favorite part. We're going to add the fried onions. So you just stir them in.

Now, we're going to test the green beans and see if they're tender. OK, great-- they're nice and soft. We're ready to go. We're going to remove the beans from the pan and add them to the base of sauce that we made.

OK, let's stir this all together. You want to make sure the beans are well-coated with the mushroom mixture. Mm, this smells great. This is going to be good. OK, that's well-combined. Now, we're going to transfer the beans to a baking casserole.

Spread the mixture until it's level in the casserole. Then, we're going to place it in the oven for 25 minutes. Then, we're going to take out of the oven, put the fried onions on top, and place it back in the oven for five more minutes. And then, we're ready to eat it. Let's put it in the oven.

It should be done by now. Let's take a look. It looks great, it's nice and brown, bubbly, it smells really good, too. We're going to sprinkle a border around the dish with the fried onions. And that'll frame our beautiful casserole.

We'll put it back in the oven for five more minutes, and then we're ready to bring it to the dinner table. We have a family size serving, and we also have individual portions that kind of dress it up a little bit. And now, the casserole is ready to enjoy.
