Green Bean Casserole Will Be Banished !

There is this vile dish in the United States called Green Bean Casserole. It consists green beans, cream of mushroom soup, and french friend onions. Somehow this dish has become a staple of American Thanksgiving despite it being created in 1955 by someone at the Campbell Soup Company called Dorcas Reilly.

First of all, people should always be wary of anyone named Dorcas. Come on, you know Dorcas probably received more wedgies and was pushed into more school lockers than the entire chess club – who names a kid Dorcas ? I am sure Dorcas’ revenge on the world was green bean casserole.

Secondly, it contains Campbell's Soup - talk about a salt fest - blech!

The original recipe card for this dish is in the National Inventors Hall of Fame in Akron Ohio. Anyone for a road trip to Akron ?

If you have not guessed, I cannot stand Green Bean Casserole. Or at least that's what I thought until I made it using fresh ingredients - I'll be sharing that recipe real soon!
