The Hot Holiday Dish: Campbell’s(R) Green Bean Casserole

CAMDEN, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov. 12, 2009–
There are certain dishes that the entire family looks forward to
enjoying each holiday. Campbell’s Green Bean Casserole is
certainly one such dish. In fact, after 54 years it has not only become
synonymous with the season, it is expected to be part of the holiday
meal on nearly 30 million tables across the U.S.

The traditional Green Bean Casserole recipe includes a creamy, crunchy
combination of green beans, Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup and French’s®
French Fried Onions. Over the years, holiday hosts have added their own
custom touches, including garlic, red pepper, hot sauce, bacon, almonds
or cheese. No matter how you choose to serve it, this is one side that
generates rave reviews each and every time.

And Cream of Mushroom soup is not just for Green Bean Casserole! This
year, Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup has reached a true
milestone – 75 years of helping America’s cooks create memorable meals.
This versatile ingredient can also help transform holiday leftovers. Two
easy recipes to try are Turkey & Stuffing Casserole and Turkey
& Broccoli Alfredo
