Ultimate Side Dish


This casserole is a creamy, crunchy, feel-good side dish — perfect for Thanksgiving! Goes great with chicken and pork chops. Sometimes on a rainy day, I'll eat a great big bowl of it.

1 2-quart casserole


  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can French-style green beans, drained

  • 1 (15 ounce) can sliced potatoes, drained

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of celery soup

  • 1 ⅛ cups milk

  • 3 tablespoons French-fried onions, divided

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • garlic powder to taste

  • 1 (8 ounce) package dry bread stuffing mix


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Place green beans and potatoes into a 2-quart casserole dish. Stir in the cream of celery soup and milk. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder; stir in 1 tablespoon of the French fried onions. Sprinkle the remaining onions on top.

  3. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven. While casserole is baking, prepare stuffing according to the package directions. Spread over the top of the casserole. I like to mash it flat with a spatula so that it covers the entire dish.

  4. Return to the oven for about 10 minutes, or until crunchy. You can also broil for a few minutes for extra crunch.


You can save on calories by using water instead of milk and going a bit easy with the French fried onions.
