Put some FUN in your Green Beans!

Anyone who knows us, knows we like to give thanks...with all the trimmings :)
Our favorite time to grocery shop is right after Thanksgiving when turkeys go on sale. We buy a few and put 'em in the deep freezer so we can give thanks all year long.

crunch em up so they sprinkle!
 Well you also know that you can't have turkey without the green bean casserole...turkey and green beans are soul mates :) In the past, we've made our own french fried onions which turned out great, but can be a bit of a time suck if you're just having a turkey feast on any old weekday after work. This year, we decided to have a little more fun...FUNYUNS are Gluten Free and a perfect quick topping for a scrumptious green bean casserole.

Now I understand, something you buy in the processed, crap food aisle may not be your number one choice to sprinkle on your green beans. Sarah, our regular cashier, noticed them in our cart and gave me a raised eyebrow...but sometimes concessions need to be made for convenience sake :)

I don't really follow any specific recipe for my casserole

Mix in your Funyuns, bake at 350 for 45 min to an hr

  • 1lb or 2 of fresh green beans, snapped and quick boiled
  • 1 can of progresso cream of mushroom soup
  • 10 sliced baby bella mushrooms
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • as many crushed funyuns as you deem necessary, half mixed in, half sprinkled on top

Another hit with the fam...but this MAY be because they had funyuns to snack on afterwards :)

Try it out...let me know what you think :)
