This retirement thingy….man oh man! I have enjoyed it so much I just seem to forget to post new stuff on this here bloggy thing!
Anyhoooo…. with the holidays fast approaching, recipes should be floating in everyone’s heads… or at least they are in mine. Both for Thanksgiving and for Christmas.
I think I am kicking up one of our recipes for Thanksgiving up a notch. The standard green bean casserole may just have a couple of added ingredients to it. While this is not an original recipe of mine, I am making a few changes to it to add a bit of spice to it for our crew.
What is your favorite dish at Thanksgiving?
Creole Sausage Green bean Casserole
1 pkg precooked Andouille sausage, sliced
3 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 can (10.5 oz) Campbell’s cream of mushroom soup
6 to 8 slices bacon, cooked and rough chopped, (reserve 2 tablespoons for topping)
3/4 cups milk
2 to 2 1/2 tsp cajun or creole seasoning, whichever you have on hand (i have both…imagine that)
4 cans cut green beans, drained
1 can (I use the large size for more crispies) Crispy Fried Onions
heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the sliced sausage, cheese, soup, milk, and seasoning plus all but the reserved 2 tbsp of bacon in a sprayed 13×9 inch baking dish. Stir in the beans and 1/13 cups of the crispy onions.
Bake uncovered for 25 minutes or until hot and bubbling. Stir, and sprinkle with the remaining 2 tbsp bacon, and the remaining onions, or however many you want on top (some may want less unless you get the regular size can). Bake another 5 minutes longer or till onions are golden brown.
I also may chop up a jalapeno and throw in the pot. Who knows??!!
Have a great weekend/upcoming week! Shout out your favorite Thanksgiving dish. You never know when a surprise drawing may just pop up among those who comment!!!
