When we think about dishes special to the holiday season, there tends to be a focus on sweet items. It seems that almost everyone has a grandmother, uncle, or other relative who makes a delicious cake or special batch of cookies every year. However, there are other dishes that grace the dining table only at the holidays. That was true for a member of our team, Jacob P., who fondly remembers Green Bean Bake. Jacob had the following to say about this veggie side dish, “I like green bean casserole because I have memories of eating it at my grandma’s house. I especially liked the crunchy French fried onion on top. It’s pretty much the only way I enjoy eating green beans.”
Jacob has been a columnist for PKP for over three years and has filled a variety of roles. He is one of our two current teen’s perspectives writers at Your Parenting Info. He also cover pets, with a focus on amphibians and reptiles, and technology.
This is a classic in many homes. If it isn’t in yours, the simplicity of assembling the dish may make it worth trying.
