Green bean casserole is a Thanksgiving Day classic. With so many approaches to the dish, it’s hard to choose which is best. So, what to do? Choose from among the favorite recipes of the TV food queens, of course.
Paula Deen‘s green bean casserole employs the usual suspects — fresh green beans, mushroom soup and french fried onion rings. The total time involved is 30 minutes — presuming you didn’t forget the canned onion rings on your grocery shopping trip.
Martha Stewart takes things slightly outside the box by incorporating shallots into her recipe. Just a tad more complicated in execution, you’ll need 35 minutes to prep and 15 minutes to cook.
Oprah Winfrey cranks up the luxe factor at Thanksgiving, as she is known to do. The O Mag mogul turns to celebrity chef Jose Garces for her green bean casserole. Garces puts a spin on the old standard with oranges, dates and almonds. Total time: 45 minutes, plus culinary school.
