“Green bean casserole is a favorite of so many of us. Green beans, creamy mushroom soup, and those delicious French Fried Onion Rings in a can, while it may not be healthy, is a classic dish you simply must have. You can have this Thanksgiving classic anytime of year by adding ground beef to this famous green bean casserole. This recipe is by Julia Owens. Kansas City, MO. 1971.”
