Not sure why people are so adverse to them. Healthy and tasty, but I digress. I suspect if people made the green bean casserole from scratch, the biggest issue would be tough-as-leather string beans because most don't know how to cook fresh veg.

What a great tribute to Dorcus Reilly --it tugs on all American's hearts to lose a pioneer who shockingly was able to have her creation become one of those dishes we all look forward to at our family gatherings during the holidays.

Families are the most important, but green-bean casserole is something that will always remind us of those reunions.

May she rest in peace
Yes bless her heart.

I do like green beans though just not in this particular dish.

RIP to Dorcas Reilly. I hope she got a percentage of all the canned cream soup profits at holiday time.

Didn't grow up with this or any "casserole". I've been a Thanksgiving dinner guest at Italian, Jewish, Menonite, Irish, German and Guyanese American homes. None of them served this green bean casserole. Only heard of it online so this has always been a myth to me.

A few people here have said that. Our family didn't eat it. I've eaten a few bites of it here and there because someone was serving it.

LOL
After the scandals over 'faked' medical trials that wrongly denounced fat as the cause of heart disease (and not sugar), I doubt any authority that claims a certain food is unhealthy.

RIP Dorcas

I didn't grow up eating this dish, my mom just cooked fresh (or home canned) green beans at almost every meal from our home garden. I didn't come across the casserole until after college. One of my adult sons really likes it and it's on his list of requested foods for Thanksgiving. I've tried to lighten it up and use fresh green beans cooked to death like his grandma did, sauteed mushrooms and cooked onions. I still won't use the canned soup, but the past couple of years I've bought the fried onion rings in a can for anyone who wants to use them as a topper.
