This dish created by Campbell's soup in 1955 has become a staple for the Thanksgiving meal. Oh sure, you can try versions with fresh green beans and various sauces, but personally, give me the canned string beans and the good old Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup. I love the crispy onion layer on the top.
This is the perfect comfort food. I even saw Trader Joe's had their own version. I so wish I had my Grandmother's plastic casserole tray that she used to serve it in. It was so retro cool --was oven-proof and everything.
Here are a couple of other classics Thanksgiving dishes mentioned on one of my favorite blogs, Old Hat. Let's give them a nod...
We have the very 60's ambrosia salad. Who can resist that mixture? Personally I love it...
I'm not sure about how I feel about tangy creamed turkey casserole. I think I'd rather stick with the traditional turkey.
Do you have any favorite dishes that make a traditional appearance on your Thanksgiving dinner table?
...oh, and if you'd like any of the above recipes, I'm happy to post, but figured you already had them ;)
