"fancy green beans" are called green bean casserole.
I thought it was a complicated recipe since we only had it once a year. I almost fell over when I found out how simple it is to make.
For some reason, both sides of the family don't make my fancy green bean casserole for holiday dinners. I'm not sure why, clearly they want to torture me. Yeah, that's got to be it.
Husband and I got a craving and we had to bring a side dinner to dinner. We decided on green bean casserole. Husband demanded the "little crunchies" on top. My family didn't make it with french fried onion, they mixed in sliced almonds.
Husband insisted and I insisted. By the power of Grayskull may our childhood memories combine to create the Voltron of green bean casserole recipes and save the world from Gargamel!
Since canned cream of mushroom soup if full of well, cream that contains diary and lactose it is not milk and dairy allergy friendly. I made a lactose intolerant green bean casserole for our holiday celebration. No one at the table knew the difference.
Dairy Free Green Bean Casserole Recipe
My lactose free cream of mushroom soup recipe (completed)
2 cups of cleaned and cut green beans
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (leave this out for if you want to make it vegan)
French fried onions (to taste)
Optional: sliced almonds (to taste) - leave this out if you have a nut allergy
Extra salt and pepper if desired (I don't because I flavored the dairy free cream of mushroom soup to our tastes and didn't think it needs extra)

2. Mix the cream of mushroom soup and green beans in a casserole dish.
3. Mix the sliced almonds into the soup and green bean mixture if desired.
4. Sprinkle the french fried onions on top of the mixture.
I made a double batch in this photo because I was feeding an Army of Husband's relatives.
