Green Bean Casserole is one of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes. My family has always used canned or fresh green beans to make the dish but using frozen made putting it together quick and easy! I enjoyed the added step of whisking the soup and milk together. In the past, I have stirred the two ingredients together with a spoon but whisking them brought some extra airiness to the final product.
Since the beans are frozen it was difficult to gauge how much salt and pepper to add to the mix while I was preparing it, and I ended up adding a good bit after it was cooked. Growing up my mom taught me that if you are unsure of how much salt to add, it is always best to err on the side of undersalting while cooking as you and your guests can add the desired amount during the meal.
