Green Bean Casserole Recipe
Baby boomers fondly remember the simple classic green bean casserole as a Thanksgiving favorite. This version is updated a bit to add fresh mushrooms. It also uses frozen green beans which contain less salt and retain more color. The traditional dish is considered almost decadent these days with cream of mushroom soup and crispy fried onions on top. Feel free to make the noted substitutions to fit your diet, but it will not taste quite the same. You may find you will need more salt than when using canned green beans.

I have a question for the expert! I saved the turkey fat when making my turkey broth from roasted turkey wings. Can I use the turkey fat in my roux for the gravy instead of butter? Would it give it more flavor? or, is this not a good idea…
Thanks for your help.

Barbara, that turkey fat will indeed enhance the gravy. Go for it!
