Green Bean Casserole Recipe

This casserole has always been one of my favorite dishes—it’s so easy to put together! You can make it before any guests arrive and refrigerate it until it’s ready to bake.—Anna Baker, Blaine, Washington
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:10 servings


  • 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup milk

  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 packages (16 ounces each) frozen green beans, cooked and drained

"I tried making my green bean casserole "fancier" one year, my own onion rings, my own cream of mushroom soup, etc. Boy did I get some grief! You just don't mess with the classics on Thanksgiving and this recipe is the one."

"I add everything except the milk. The milk made it soupy. It is not needed and everyone loves it because it is nice and thick. Which is my preference."

"I make this every year and everyone loves it. The only difference to the recipe is to use one can of cream of mushroom and one can of cream of celery. This adds a depth of flavor."

"This casserole is delicious! I realized when I got started that I didn't have any milk. Initially that was disappointing but then realized I had some heavy cream. So I used a cup of that. I also used less than a half a cup of mixed vegetables I had left from a previous dish. I was trying to get rid of them so I threw them in the mix. I sprinkled some garlic powder on top to give it that final kick. Again, this casserole is delicious!"

"Always a family hit!. Because my son doesn't like mushrooms I used cream of chicken. Still a winner. You would think the soy sauce would make it over salty but it doesn't. It best to use frozen or fresh beans that you have already cooked and than drain any liquid."

"Saute sliced mushrooms and red onions together. 1 sm-container mushrooms. I always get sliced for this, but you can get whole and leave them whole or slice. 1/2 large red onion or whole small red onion. Slice into long slices. While that is sauting, finely chop jalapeno'...s - slice long way, remove seeds, then finely chop. 1/4 c. or more 1/3-1/2 cup for those who want some heaviier spice. Toss in with mushrooms and onions for last two minutes. Drain well and add to green bean casserole prior to baking. Makes for a delicious change of the original green bean casserole.
