Sunday Suppers: Green Bean Casserole

Green Bean Casserole

I'm going to be honest....I'm likely to eat a whole pan of this by myself. I'll eat it before it makes it to the table, during dinner, as part of my "dessert" time....cold from the fridge. I know I have a problem but, seriously, Green Bean Casserole is easily my favorite side on the Thanksgiving table (or Tuesday's)!

When we're talking level of difficulty, this side dish is the savory version of a dump cake and usually it's one that I let my little ones "help" me with too.



  • 12 oz. Fried Onions

  • 6 - 14.5 oz. Cans of French Style Green Beans, drained fully

  • 2 - 10.5-11 oz. Cans of Cream of Mushroom Soup

  • 1 cup Milk

  • 1 tbls black pepper

Step 1: Dump

Like I said, this is a really easy recipe but, I do recommend using the largest bowl you can find. This seems to take up 10 times the space it should while stirring together.

Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees F.

Mix the soup, milk & black pepper in your giant bowl. Extra points if you can find the Cream of Mushroom & Roasted Garlic in your grocery store! Once you no longer see soup "chunks", drain the green beans really well, add them to your bowl & mix thoroughly. We'll add half the fried onions now (don't add them before mixing all of the other ingredients or they will break down too far) and stir gently to combine them throughout.

Step 2: Top & Bake

Pour the whole bowl in an oven-safe baking dish (go big or go home). Use your spoon or spatula to level off the top and then pour the remaining fried onions all over the top. Cover with foil and bake for 35-40 minutes. Remove the foil and cook an additional 5-10 minutes, depending on how crispy and/or dark you like your fried onions!


Green Bean Casserole: Why do we have other sides?

I know, probably going to lose a sister-n-law over this but, I'd go without mac & cheese for the rest of my life for more of this. It's perfection next to your ham or turkey on Thanksgiving but, I'm just as happy on any day of the week with it next to a pork chop too. Green Bean Casserole....not just for Thanksgiving!
