Nothing says Thanksgiving and Christmas like food and family! Growing up my Mom and Grandmother always made sure that a delicious but simple green bean casserole was served with each buffet or sit down meal with the family during the holidays. You know, Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup, Del Monte® Green Beans, and of course French’s® Crispy Fried Onions! It wasn’t until I became an adult myself that I wanted to change things up a bit and get a little more “exotic” in my creations.
You don’t have to be a professional chef to whip up something tasty while keeping the feel of the good old holiday traditions you grew up with. One of my favorite ways to add flare is to add turkey bacon to vegetables. See how just an extra few minutes can turn your traditional green bean casserole in to a Salty Pretzel Bacon Green Bean Casserole that the whole family will go crazy for!
This is my Twist on the original green bean casserole.
- (4) cans of Del Monte® French Cut Green Beans
- (2) cans of Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
- (1) container of French’s® Crispy Fried Onions (Original or Caramelized Onion is suggested)
- (6) slices of bacon or turkey bacon
- (1 ) cup of salted pretzel sticks
- (3) tbsp butter
- (2) tbsp parmesan cheese.
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Pre-heat oven to 400
- In microwave or on stove top cook your bacon until just almost turning crispy
- Divide your French’s® Crispy Fried Onions, Crush half with the pretzels either in a sandwich bag or with a food processor.
- Drain your green beans and place in large pan. Add butter, parmesan cheese, and salt & pepper.
- Cut up your bacon or turkey bacon and toss in the mixture.
- Cook on medium until butter is melted.
- Add in the cream of mushroom soup
- Stir until slightly boiling
- Stir in your French’s® Crispy Fried Onions and Pretzel mix
- Transfer to a baking dish
- Place in oven for 20 minutes
- Pull baking dish out and add the remaining French’s® Crispy Fried Onions
- Let bake 5 more minutes
- Serve immediately
*If transferring to a new serving dish it is advised that you use a flat utensil to transfer by scooping under and setting in to the dish so you do not flip over all your toppings*
