Green Bean Casserole

Updated: May 27

"Tender green beans are tossed in a delicious creamy sauce, cheese, crispy onions, and baked with even more crispy onions until hot and bubbly."

Classic Green Bean Casserole

Servings: 8

Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 40minutes minutes


  • 4 cups frozen cut green bean defrosted (see notes for canned or fresh beans)

  • 10 1/2 ounces cream of mushroom soup

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoning salt or to taste

  • 1 1/2 cups crispy fried onions divided


Preheat oven to 350°F.

If using fresh or frozen green beans, boil just until tender crisp.

Combine soup, green beans, milk, soy sauce, pepper, salt, 1 cup of crispy onions, and cheese (if using) in a casserole dish.

Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes or bubbly.

Remove from oven and stir. Top with remaining onions and return to oven for an additional 10 minutes or until golden.


Green Beans:

Canned, fresh, or frozen beans work in this recipe. In place of frozen beans, you can use either of the following:

drain 2 (14 ½ ounces each) cans of green beans

1 ½ pounds fresh green beans, trimmed and simmered for about 7-8 minutes

Optional Additions:

1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese (favorite!)

fried mushrooms, onions, garlic, and/or shallots

Make Ahead:

This casserole can be made up to 48 hours ahead of time. Remove the casserole from the fridge for at least 30 minutes before baking. You may need to add 10 minutes of extra cooking time.

"To some, this dish is the highlight of any holiday table. Plus, it counts as a vegetable in the middle of all those starchy sides…. wait, that means it counts for two veggies... Right?!"
