whatscookinwednesdayWith 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!

However, Texas Green Bean Casserole is greater.  Why not try something a little different, yet a little the same, for your holiday table this year?

Texas Green Bean Casserole


8 cups cooked green beans (fresh, frozen, canned. . . any kind.)

One 6-oz. can of french fried onions

2 cans cream of mushroom soup (don’t add liquid to it!)

3/4 cup milk

1/2 cup Texas Pineapple Habanero Pepper Jelly

What to do:

Mix everything except 1/2 cup on onions in a 3-quart casserole dish.

Bake at 350 for about a half hour; after 20 minutes, it’s good to check regularly.  Ovens differ.

Top with remaining onions.

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