Get ready to stir things up this season, this isn’t your grandma’s green bean casserole…NOPE! This is an over the top, wow-factored, party starter, that’s what this is…haha! No one will know what hit them, no one will know what to say, no one will ever forget you!
Each onion ring stack is bursting at the seams with traditional green bean casserole, so just relax, this isn’t that crazy..haha! These are only shocking in their presentation, all of grandma’s green bean casserole elements are safely stuffed on the inside..lol! 🙂
This just provides some whimsy, some fun, some good old fashioned portion control..right?! RIGHT!
Besides, the kids at the table will be silenced by delight and amazement, and that means more adult relaxation for you! 🙂
~Make a big batch of these succulent and savory stacks and ‘wow’ everyone this year, even Grandma..at least until all the cocktails kick in! 😉
What you’ll need:
Onion Rings…about 3 per stack! I used Sonic’s
lazy girl’s drive-thru version…lol BUT~ you can buy them frozen or make them from scratch too!
For the casserole:
1-15 oz. can of French Style Green Beans..drained
1-15 oz. can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
1/4 cup Milk
1 cup French’s French Fried Onions..reserving some for topping.
Salt and Pepper to taste
In a large bowl combine the beans, soup, egg, milk, french’s fried onion rings, salt and pepper until incorporated…
On a lined sheet pan, stack up the onion rings by layering 3 of them in like sizes…
Now, carefully fill them up with the green bean mixture, and top them with some reserved french fried onion rings..
Bake them at 350 degrees for approx. 20 minutes, or just until the tops are golden and bubbly…
Serve them up nice and hot!
And DIG IN! ~Enjoy! 🙂
Let me just start by saying thank you. I’m one of the primary cooks for Thanksgiving. My mom is an awful cook and hates it, and then all the women from her side of the family *think* they can cook but always end up doing weird crap to good dishes and ruining them, like pimentos in dressing for “color” instead of say red bell pepper which is nearly flavorless… or Water Chestnuts in Broccoli rice and cheese casserole for “crunch!” So once I moved into my first full size 1 bedroom apartment 5 hours away from my parents by myself I taught myself how to cook. So for this year’s Thanksgiving I’m in charge mainly of sides, so I plan to make Broccoli rice casserole because I got a rice cooker(because I suck at cooking rice) and kind of just want to use it. But my grandma wants me to make green bean casserole. Personally I can’t remember the last time I had any, and it’s never seemed all that appealing, but when I was sharing your Jack and Coke Pie which I will be making to go along w/ my dad’s pecan pie, a coworker discovered this recipe. It’s perfect. It actually makes green bean casserole look good to me. I plan on adding some cheese because well we’re in Texas and personally I believe cheese and/or onions can improve any dish.
Aww..wow, this just made my day, so thank YOU! 🙂
If you use the frozen onion rings, do I need to cook them before adding the casserole part? Then baked them again?
Sending my husband to Sonic tomorrow… Because Momma don’t have time to play around! I’m not a fan of the watery, tasteless casserole version made by grandma, so this one gives me hope. I’m adding a pinch of garlic seasoning and mixing in crispy bacon bits to the french fried onions–because like Joshlyn mentioned– this is Texas. Cheese or Bacon on EVERYTHING!
