Anyway, I don't do the traditional green bean casserole with cream of mushroom soup and canned fried onions. A few years back I found a recipe that involved using fresh haricot vert, onion, mushrooms, a butter/flour roux with milk for the cream base, and a topping of shallots that you fry yourself. It's a bit more complex to make, but since I don't do it on the big day, I can take the extra time to make what is a stunningly tasty dish.
So it was bean casserole and mashed taters for dinner tonight. Didn't miss the turkey at all!
