Green bean casserole is a casserole consisting of green beans, cream of mushroom soup, and french fried onions. It is a popular Thanksgiving side dish in the United States.

History of recipe

The green bean casserole was first created in 1955 by the Campbell Soup Company. Dorcas Reilly led the team that created the recipe while working as a staff member in the home economics department.[1] The inspiration for the dish was "to create a quick and easy recipe around two things most Americans always had on hand in the 1950s: green beans and Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup."[1]

In the 1972 version of the Good Housekeeping Cookbook the recipe replaced the creamy mushroom soup with sour cream.[2]

In 2002, Reilly presented the original recipe card to the National Inventors Hall of Fame in Akron, Ohio.[3]
