Never Enough Green Bean Casserole

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Heat the undiluted cream of mushroom soup in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the processed cheese and bacon, and continue stirring until completely melted. Remove from the heat, stir in the mushrooms, then the green beans until evenly coated. Pour the mixture into a casserole dish, and top with the fried onions, leaving a 1 inch margin around the sides.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until heated through and bubbly. Check near the end of cooking to make sure the onions aren't getting too brown.


  • Note
  • This recipe uses the submitter's substitution in place of a bacon cheese spread, as it is not widely available. If the bacon cheese spread is available, use 1 (5 ounce) jar in place of the processed cheese and bacon in this recipe.

  • Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

Not much flavor. I did use french cut green beans which added a little visual to the recipe. I felt as if this recipe was lacking something. We all ate it but no one was blown away.

The original recipe called for a jar of Kraft Bacon cheese spread. It comes in a small, 5 oz. glass jar (with a metal pry-off lid). It also comes in other flavors. Old English is the one I use...

I chose to do this in a crockpot over Thanksgiving, do to the oven being overused as it was. I doubled the recipe and used the kraft old english substitute, frozen greenbeans and no extra mushro...

This was a nice change from the usual green bean cassarole. I used frozen greenbeans like others have suggested and I really liked them better than the canned ones. I also used some fresh mushro...

This is my go to recipe for all pitch-ins and family functions. I omit the bacon pieces to make it vegetarian. As seen in the italics at the bottom, the velveeta is a substitution and not in the...

I have been using this recipe since Nov of 2005, and I still think it is the best green bean casserole recipe. All of my friends and family now use this recipe as well. There are a couple of c...

This was pretty good! I loved the addition of the mushrooms and bacon, but wasn't crazy about the velveeta cheese that I used - I would probably try another cheese the next time. Thanks!
