National Green Bean Casserole Day

Green Bean Casserole, a favorite comfort food usually eaten at Thanksgiving, is celebrated today. Its two main ingredients are green beans and cream of mushroom soup, and it is usually topped with French fried onions. The recipe was created by Dorcas "Dottie" Reilly, in 1955, while she was working for the Campbell's Soup Company, in their home economics department. When creating the dish, the goal was to come up with something that could be made with ingredients that could be found in most people's houses. Campbell's began putting the recipe on the outside of their cream of mushroom soup cans in about 1960. In 2002 Dottie Reilly presented her original recipe card to the National Inventors Hall of Fame. National Green Bean Casserole Day was created by Jace Shoemaker-Galloway.
