Largest green bean casserole

Green bean casserole is a classic Thanksgiving staple. 

Though it appears on several tables for the annual American holiday, Green Giant decided to take this year’s festivities to the next level by cooking up a 637 lb dish. 

After gathering at Stella 34 Trattoria, Macy’s Herald Square restaurant in New York, culinary experts used the kitchen to whip up the Largest green bean casserole. 

In total, the gigantic casserole was made using 780 cans of Green Giant Cut Green Beans, 53 cans of mushroom soup, 32 quarts of milk and 65 lbs of French fried onions.

In light of the giving season, the entire casserole was divided up and donated to Citymeals on Wheels, a non-profit organization in New York which prepares and delivers meals for the city’s homebound elderly. 

"Citymeals on Wheels is grateful to Green Giant for sharing this record-breaking and delicious moment with us. During the holiday season, many of our homebound elderly neighbors remember celebrations with friends and family from years gone by. We’re happy to bring them the traditional dishes they know and love, like this classic green bean treat," - Beth Shapiro, Executive Director of Citymeals on Wheels.

This delicious record attempt took place just a week prior to the 91st Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which happens to hold the title for the Largest inflatable parade. 

"We wanted to celebrate our inaugural year in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade by baking up some excitement while helping so many people in this incredible city. Green Giant has been a staple in Thanksgiving feasts for more than 100 years and we’re thrilled to make our mark as the Guinness World Records title holder for the largest serving of green bean casserole that will serve 2,000 homebound elderly through Citymeals on Wheels," - Jordan Greenberg, Vice President & General Manager, Green Giant.
