My hands down favorite Thanksgiving food is gluten-free green bean casserole with homemade fried onions. I can literally eat the entire pan on my own!
Green bean casserole was always one of my all time favorite Thanksgiving day foods. I decided to make a recipe for gluten-free green bean casserole so I, and many others, don’t have to miss out on a classic favorite.
If you know me, then you know that I don’t think anyone who lives gluten-free should miss out on anything. Especially not on holidays. This is why I recreate delicious favorites as well as come of with fun new menu items that everyone will enjoy. Remember my savory stuffing cupcakes? They are always a big hit on the Thanksgiving table.
This green bean casserole with homemade fried onions is surprisingly easy and will definitely be a crowd please. One word of warning, I don’t recommend using purple onions when making fried onions as they turn out a bit dark and unpleasant looking. Stick with white or yellow.
You may wonder why I use canned green beans instead of fresh. The truth is that I love a classic green bean casserole and the fresh just don’t give it that same flavor that grandma’s did. What can I say, I am a very nostalgic person. Now, if you like fresh, most certainly feel free to use them.
