Have you ever looked at what is in foods these days? Have you ever wondered why life has gotten so crazy that we all rely on processed "quick" foods and fast foods? Well I have had my eyes opened recently when we started to realize our oldest child could be ADD. I decided to clean up our diets and turn out lives around. I am a woman, married to a wonderful man who supports everything I do. We have 3 wonderful children who keep us on our toes and every day when I pick them up from school the first things out of their mouths is "mommy what's for dinner" so here it is...

Green Bean Casserole WITHOUT canned soup...SO GOOD

Okay just in time for thanksgiving. 

We have been testing in my home new recipes of old favorites that are usually on the Thanksgiving table but we can't have.  Some of these favorites have bad added stuff to them and too much processing.  So today we found a great recipe for Green Bean Casserole (thanks to allrecipes.com) and tested it out...I for one think it's better than using canned soup.  So here's one of the recipes that will be on my thanksgiving table and it's totally Feingold friendly!

Green Bean Casserole
Serves 10


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 (14.5 ounce) cans French style green beans, drained
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup crumbled buttery round crackers 1 large can of French's french fried onions
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in flour until smooth, and cook for one minute. Stir in the salt, sugar, onion, and sour cream. Add green beans and half of the onions, and stir to coat.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish. Spread shredded cheese over the top and remaining onions sprinkle over the cheese.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is golden and cheese is bubbly.

VERDICT: I thought this was good but hubby thinks there was too much sour cream (I didn't mix in the onions) but it will be on our turkey dinner table...YUMMY!
