In her version of green bean casserole, my mom includes fresh beans instead of frozen, portabella mushrooms, caramelized onions, and only a touch of cream of mushroom soup. I'd forego all other elements of the Thanksgiving feast in order to elevate this dish from side show to solo act.

She always tells me the beans have retained significant crunchiness. I won't tell her that the only crunch I want is from the gross but fantastic canned onion things that, thankfully, she still uses to top the casserole. How do you tell your mom you prefer "white trash" to this treasure?
