The biggest issue that arises in Green Bean Casserole is it’s becoming soupy. With its ingredients including the can of cream of mushroom soup, the final look should be creamy instead of loose and watery.
The founder of The Seasoned Mom, Blair Lonargan says a thin and soupy Casserole destroys your Thanksgiving plate, waters down the taste and crunchiness of the topping.
Making your sauce thick is important because it binds the Casserole together – said Lauren Allen, the owner of the recipe website Tastes Better From Scratch. In Lieu of being watery and thin, the coating of green bean is achieved by the thickening of the sauce, it also aids the other flavors to be more concentrated than diluted.
