Our Version of the Traditional Green Bean Casserole

With the holidays approaching, many people are getting out their recipes for that old standby: green bean casserole.

Not that there’s anything WRONG with that. Green bean casserole is great. We love it! It is a staple around the TPJ office and not just during Christmas or Thanksgiving.

However, our version of it, Texas Green Bean Casserole, is better than your old traditional recipe. Why not try something a little different, yet a little the same, for your holiday table this year?

Your friends and family will be licking the dish clean. Okay, maybe not to that extreme, but it will be enjoyed. It is full of flavor and we only add one simple ingredient – our original pepper jelly flavor – Pineapple Habanero Pepper Jelly.

Here is our Texas take on the original Green Bean Casserole recipe from Campbell’s Soup.

Ingredients: Texas Pepper Jelly Pineapple Habanero jelly jar

  • 8 cups cooked green beans (Drained) (fresh, frozen, canned. . . any kind.)
  • One 6-oz. container of French’s French Fried Onions
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 cans Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup (don’t add liquid to it!)
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup Texas Pepper Jelly Pineapple Habanero

What to do:

Preheat your oven to 350° F.

Mix the milk, soy sauce, pineapple pepper jelly, and soup into a 3-quart casserole dish. Then mix in the drained green beans and fried onions (retain ½ cup of the onions for the final steps of cooking) into the casserole dish.

Once it is all mixed, put it in the oven and bake at 350° F for about a half hour; after 20 minutes, it’s good to check regularly. Ovens differ.

In the last 10 minutes, top the casserole with the remaining ½ cup of french fried onions.

As always with any Texas Pepper Jelly recipe, STAND BACK. And definitely don’t count on having any leftovers.
