The woman who created a Thanksgiving staple, the green bean casserole, has died. She was 92.
Dorcas Reilly died on October 15th, and her family will celebrate her life Saturday in Haddonfield, New Jersey, where she lived.
Reilly was a Campbell Soup kitchen supervisor in 1955 when she combined green beans and cream of mushroom soup, topped with crunchy fried onions. It is the most popular recipe ever to come out of the corporate kitchen at Campbell Soup.
