There is nothing more comforting to have on Thanksgiving Day than some classic recipes. For me, it will always be the feeling of home and pleasant memories of family dinners that I associate with the holiday and its staple dishes. If you have gravy, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and green bean casserole with cheese on the table, then the holiday was a success.

Easy Green Bean Casserole

This recipe came out as a combination of my two intentions. To replicate my mom’s casserole recipe and include as many vegetables as possible in our meals. Mushrooms added extra texture to the mix and made this casserole even more nourishing. The crust turns out very crunchy thanks to breadcrumbs and parmesan baked in the oven. It fits perfectly the creamy tender filling with juicy green beans and mushrooms.

How to make green bean casserole from scratch at home:

Blanch green beans

  • After blanching, you need to place green beans in cold water or under running cold water. I have drained them using a colander.

Drain water using colander

  • Cut the onion into thin slices and then sauté it in the skillet over medium to high heat. Cook it until soft and golden. Transfer it to a deep bowl.
