Green Bean Casserole


When the festive season rolls around, I can’t help but dive into the traditions that make it feel like the holidays, even here in Singapore where the leaves don’t change color. One dish that’s a non-negotiable on my Thanksgiving menu is the classic green bean casserole. It’s a little piece of comfort, a reminder of shared meals and shared stories.


Leeks are underrated...


This year, I’m stirring up a bit of kitchen magic by crafting my own cream of mushroom from scratch, using my trusty mushroom soup recipe. It’s a labor of love, but for those who prefer a shortcut, a can of Campbell's does the trick—no judgment here!



Topping this casserole, I go with freshly blitzed breadcrumbs from a couple of slices of bread for that perfect, golden crunch. Nothing beats that sound of the crust giving way under the fork—pure bliss! And just when you think it can’t get any better, I add a sprinkle of crispy fried leeks over the baked casserole, because if you’re going to do it, why not do it with a bit of panache?



Whether you're gathering around the table for Thanksgiving or simply craving the coziness that only a casserole can bring, this green bean casserole is where it’s at. It’s a dish that’s all about bringing the warmth, the flavor, and a sprinkle of fancy to your festive feast. So let’s roll up our sleeves and dive into making this beloved classic—your taste buds will thank you!
