Green Bean Casserole

I have seen green bean casserole at every holiday meal on my Dad's side of the family for as long as I can remember, and until October '07, I had no idea that I LOVED it. My sister-in-law brought it to a family dinner, and I was watching her make it. I thought, I would probably like that, I'm going to finally try it. I think I had 3 helpings that night. Oh, man!!! I love this stuff. Then, at Thanksgiving that year, my mother-in-law made a version of it that is her mother-in-laws recipe. I just love getting family recipes from my husbands' side of the family, and since I had a new found love of green bean casserole- I was so excited!! I know, it doesn't take much...

Granny's Green Bean Casserole
*multiply by 2 to serve 3 adults or more, or by 4 for a large group

1 can cut green beans, drained
1 can cream of chicken and mushroom soup (I doubled mine, and used one can of cream of chicken, and one can of cream of mushroom)
1/2 soup can of milk
8 saltine crackers, crushed
1 Tbsp. dry Italian dressing (Granny used Good Seasons brand. I did not have this, so I used Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning blend)
1 can french fried onions, divided

Mix all ingredients, saving half of the onions.
This is the beans, soups, and milk. Don't forget to season with some salt and pepper.
I mixed that together, and then added in the 1/2 can on onions,
crushed saltines, and Mrs. Dash seasoning.Mix well. Pour rest of the onions on top. Bake for 30 minutes for a smaller batch, or 45-1 hour for the larger batches.
