Green Bean Casserole

I think everyone has heard of and had the famous “Green Bean Casserole” … I know we had it almost every holiday when I was growing up…. what I find surprising…and maybe it’s just my Mother did it slightly differently… but when searching Green Bean Casserole… out of curiosity …. I found the “official” recipe to be different than my Mother’s… not a lot different… just a bit.

We never thinned the canned soup with milk…. and we never added soy sauce…. and we always used canned French style green beans not frozen cut green beans… which appears to be in the Campbell’s Kitchens recipe. So with that said…. here is our recipe for the Classic Green Bean Casserole…


My Mother always used one can of French style green beans drained…. You can use cut green beans… however.. the texture will differ than my recipe.

We always used canned green beans and drained them.. you can use frozen or fresh green beans… some recipes cook them first.. some don’t… I recommend that you cook them first otherwise they will be very chewy…

You can use either 98% fat free or regular condensed cream of mushroom soup.. either will work well.

Depending on how much you want to make…. and how many people you’re feeding… just increase the recipe as needed… it doubles easily.

You can never have too many French’s French Fried Onions.

The Fried Onions now come in a Cheddar Cheese flavor… which I bought by accident and was upset that I didn’t have the regular ones… until I tried it… they’re great!

I hope you like our version of this great classic!
