It’s a staple at holiday time. Most everyone enjoys Green Bean Casserole and many tables across America feature the dish. But isn’t it about time to spruce it up a bit? Take it a step further? Change the ingredients? Maybe change the presentation? Let’s play around with this dish! Classic green bean casserole starts with the same three staple ingredients every time. French’s® French Fried Onions, Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup and Del Monte® Green Beans. We buy ours at Walmart because they are easy to find and always available. But let’s say you want to change your recipe up a bit. You could try this Twisted Green Bean Casserole or this Gouda, Bacon and Portabella Mushroom Green Bean Casserole. Or if you want, you can just keep it classic and go with the original recipe everyone uses.
However, now it’s time to play around a little with the presentation. We love Phyllo Dough cups and we love puff pastry. Either one of these would make the perfect vessel to serve your wonderful green bean casserole.
How about Green Bean Casserole Cups?
How about instead of serving Green Bean Casserole with a big old spoon and everyone just dropping a spoonful on their plate, get a little creative instead? Let’s try serving Green Bean Casserole in little phyllo cups for a fun twist and a great presentation. It’s the perfect solution since they are already made up, the perfect serving size and they look cute too.
We used the mini cups because they are pretty much bite size, but you could use the larger cups and get the same effect. The phyllo dough is mild, so the full Green Bean Casserole dish flavor shines through and is still the main component. It’s just about changing it up, making it unique or special.
I love making classic dishes my own way, and having some fun with the presentation makes it even better. What is your favorite way to modernize your favorite holiday dish?
