Green Bean Casserole

Casserole cookery became all the rage in the 1950s and 60s through marketing campaigns that encouraged American housewives to take advantage of modern household conveniences. Canned food was an essential part of this new era of cooking, making it possible for home cooks to feed their families in a fraction of the time. This recipe, created by Campbell Soup Company’s Dorcas Reilly in 1955, is made using a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup and canned green beans. Today this creamy dish continues to be a standby for those who are time-challenged and is often served as a side dish for Thanksgiving Day feasts.
