So where do you stand on Green Bean Casserole? I don't like it at all. My taste buds think it is nasty and vile  :p  :D

It looks vile beyond measure.  It doesn't really taste so bad, but it's horribly bad for you and if I never ate it again I wouldn't miss it.

I think that is one of those childhood foods that, as an adult, we figure out it is not so good.  I still like it in small portions.  Mostly, I put it in the same category as all of those other casseroles that I ate at church gatherings.  However, to this day I do not eat tuna casserole any longer because of some vile stuff I ate as an adult.  Had no choice but to eat or go hungry.  Looking back on it, I should have skipped that meal and just been hungry until breakfast.

I'm kind of partial to tuna casserole.

The beans and mushroom soup are OK, but it's Soooo predictable.

I'm with Jim.  It's boring, but tuna casserole trulyl is vile.  My mom was making some for my father when I was at their place last week.  The smell made my stomach churn.

But when you grow up in the midwest, you can't escape green bean casserole no matter how much you try.

It's okay. I'm just getting burnt out on it year after year for several meals. Plus it just doesn't taste as good as it used to when I was a kid. Guess my taste buds have changed.

It's easy to make.
It's comfort food.
It's easy to make.
Kids won't eat that fancy-smancy green bean dish yer thinking about.
Fresh green beans in November and December?  Not in cold climes so mix in a couple cans of green beans with a can of cream of mushroom.  Dump a can of onion rings on top and bake at 385 for about 45 minutes and voila ... one dish done for the gathering.
Did I mention it's easy to make?

S.O.S. is some good eats. The green bean casserole, not so much.

Of course, I'm not a big fan of green beans.

Never tried it because I don't do green beans.  But now that I'm reading how unhealthy it is, I'm thinking it might actually taste OK  :laugh:

yep.  so is my wife.  it's worse in her family, too.  I swear they have GBC at least once a week.

her family is even so bad that my wife didn't know how to work with most fresh vegetables when we got married, and she never had a vegetable garden growing up.

I'm fortunate that my side of the family at least has a few people in it who like flavor and seasonings and good food.  Unfortunately it's not my immediate family.  at least they like fresh vegetables.

Same here.  I also love SOS, and biscuits and gravy.  Lately though, gravy and fatty sauces like alfredo and hollandaise have been upsetting my stomach, to put it nicely.  For now, I'm going to keep eating them selectively and suffer the consequences.
