I make a very similar GBC. I usually use 1 1/2 cans of condensed cream of mushroom soup and 3 cans of green beans to get a better consistancy. I also mix in mild cheddar cheese. I also top the casserole with cheese & the french fried onions. Also my bake time is longer than the 30 mins (likely due to the increased beans n soup). More like 45 mins. Everyone likes the way I make mine so no complaints here!Read More

Try this recipe with Cream of Chicken soup as a substitue or in addition to the Mushroom; guaranteed hit! I make it every year and its the first dish gone!
My fiancee wanted green beans with dinner last night and I was looking for a quick and easy recipe to dress the beans up a little bit. This recipe was a winner. It just took a few minutes to put it together and I already had all the ingredients on hand. It was so simple, but tasted wonderful. Exactly what I was looking for. The only change I made was not to top it of with onions at the end. I didn't want the onions to overpower the green beans. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It will become a favorite in our house.
Delicious! Always on the table for holiday dinners. I have used Cream of Celery soup and Cream of Chicken soup. It's all good but I like Cream of Mushroom best.
We really enjoyed this recipe. I did substitute sour cream for the milk, and added a tiny bid of chopped red onion just for flavor. Thanks for sharing!!!
i made this for dinner this evening i used the healthy request cream of mushroom soup it is 98% fat free and 45% less sodium it tasted the same and was healther at that and also used fat free milk thanks for suminting this meal
Be sure and thaw the green beans first (just put them in a colander and run some hot water over them). I used lowfat soup, skim milk, and added 1/8 tsp. pepper. Perfect! Thanks for the recipe!
Awesome recipe, I used French Cut Green Beans (with no salt added) nistead of the regular green beans. Everyone loved it that way!
This is a great recipe because it is so easy. I use 3 cans of beans, a handful of shredded cheddar and I add about 1/2 tsp of Onion powder and 3/4 tsp of garlic powder to the wet mixture before mixing into the beans...I find this adds a ton more flavour.
Seemed really bland to me. Needed more seasonings.
Simply delicious! Its a standby favorite that is always on my Christmas dinner table. The must have ingredient in this recipe is the French Fried Onions. Yummmmmy!!
Quick and simple. Easy to throw together, Yet as tasty as any other green bean casserole I've had. Some times I add a bit of sour cream to this recipe and/or grated cheese. I make this all the time.
It was great. I added some salt as well - I had company over when I fixed it. My guests said it was the best green bean casserole they had ever tasted.
What a great recipe. A friend served this with a slight variation with carrots and cauliflower and it was great. Quick, easy and satisfying!
very easy, tasted great!
I use (thawed) frozen green beans for this dish. And I mix in 1 whole cup of french fried onions. Add a shake of soy sauce, and don't skimp on the black pepper. It's also really good if you add a couple Tbsp. sour cream. Bake for 45 min. and add enough more onions to cover. This IS really good with cauliflower, too! Thanks, Beth.
Classic recipe. I substituted the French-friend onions by some pan friend onions to cut back on the fat. The baking time needs to be far longer than 30 minutes. After half an hour, the beans are still very crunchy and half frozen. It took almost 1.5 hours before it was well done. However, taste was very good when it was finally done.
Doubled this recipe and used half cream of mushroom & half cream of chicken soup (celery soup would also work great) because my nieces hate mushrooms. They never knew they ate some!
This is your basic, quickie GBC. Always good. Makes me think of my mom. Thanks.
good recipe! Be sure to use enough green beans, though... my turned out a little soupier than I'd like, but I didn't quite have enough for the huge batch I was making.
I have been making GBC since I was a child but looked up a recipe for this past thanksgiving. We were going to be having a lot of guests and I wanted to make sure the GBC was the best it could be. Even though it had great ratings the small changes to my original recipe didn't amount to much improvement. You can drop the milk and just add 1 can of cream of mushroom for every 1 can of green beans and get similar if not better results. Of course add the pepper. I gave it 3 stars because while there was no complaints there were no compliments either. I have in the past made it with croutons or bread crumbs on top and it tastes just as good. If you don't have the french fried onions in your pantry don't hesitate to substitute.
very delicious. I added some sour cream and stuck to the rest.
awesome recipe... I like using fresh string beans. Boil them until they are almost done and then use them for the casserole. I also like using cream of mushroom soup with garlic to give it more flavor. I add a can of sliced mushrooms to the mix too (4 oz).
made as written. I wanted a time tested recipe that was easy. this was not it. I knew I should have used fresh green beans, make a roux, fresh bell peppers and onions add some extra sharp cheese. I got lazy. well, my fault...I knew better, but champagne was flowing and I wanted out of the kitchen.
This was pretty good! I felt like the recipe as it was, is missing something...might add sour cream next time?
I used fat-free milk and Campbells makes a 98% fat-free cream of mushroom soup now... anyhoo.. it turned out GREAT! I made it for Thanksgiving and it was almost all gone. Oh I used frozen green beans also, instead of canned. Not as good, a little crunchier (fresher), but Jillian Michaels says cans release toxins in ur food...
Loved this recipe! I am not an onion lover, but the crunchy ones in this recipe gave it texture and the flavor was nice. Thanks for sharing:)
Used cream of chicken and fresh green beans (boiled them first so they would be soft.) Quick and easy recipe. Bf loved it.
I liked this recipe, although I found it to be a bit too creamy. I think I'll add more green beans next time so it tastes like a legitimate vegetable side dish and not another fattening side dish! :) (Even though I used low-fat cream of mushroom soup!).
Rinsed and thawed the green beans a little first. Mixed this up the night before (minus the fried onions) and kept in fridge. Added onions and cooked the next day. I substituted sour cream for milk and didn't like that taste so next time I'll try with milk.
Great, just like the one on the package of French's onions.
I made this for Thanksgiving and there was none left over. I doubled the recipe and used 3 cans (14 oz) french style green beans instead of the frozen green beans and 1 1/2 cans (6 oz) of French fried onions.
Yum!! I use canned green beans and also add a small can of sliced mushrooms, since we like extra mushrooms. I'm making this today for Thanksgiving!
I believe this pretty close if not the exact recipie from the french's french fried onions container. WE LOVE IT! I always add a little more onions because I like them. The french's cheddar flavored french fried onions are also great for a little extra flavor.
This was bland as written. Others seem to comment with alterations and then give a higher rating. I would only make this again with a lot more seasoning and maybe cheese.
Fresh chopped asparagus can be substituted for the green beans. Do not cook the asparagus ahead of time as it cooks perfectly in the oven. Sauted green peppers are also a great addition.
My family and friends raved about this casserole! It was super simple to make!
Delicious!! This is the best green been casserole I've had. Simple, yet everyone at the table loved it. I'm going to use this with broccoli next, I'm sure that will be excellent too. Thanks for the great recipe.
This is the classic recipe everyone knows and loves. I'm surprised I even needed to look it up.
I have used this recipe many times, and it never fails me! I always get raving reviews! Simple+Delicious=perfection! :)
this recipe was very bland. I fixed it by adding 1 tsp of garlic powder and 1 tbsp of soy sauce. My husband says I need to make two batches next time!
There is a very similar recipe on the back of the French's Onion can. I follow this recipe to a "T" every year. It is perfect! I always use the Cream of Mushroom Healthy Request version and 1% milk. Don't change a thing!
I've made this a couple of times and it's very simple, but very good. Only rated a 3 because I don't rate things 5 where the main ingredients come from a can. It's simple but tasty. Thanks.
This is real comfort food. I usually add shredded cheddar to the beans and a little on top too.cheese
yummy and easy. I did 2/4 milk and 1/4 sour cream. It is a good base to play from. I add some Red Pepper for flavor and real grilled onions for a fresh taste and I LOVE onions.
Very simple and quick recipe. Make sure you season it well. If you have any dairy adverse eaters, you might want to use less milk--will be just as good. This tastes even better a day or so later.
I had never had green been casserole and I found this super easy and good!
Shhh!!!! I cannot believe someone "stole" my secret!! lol! I NEVER use regular canned, cut string beans...I ALWAYS use the french cut. It is so fabulous!! All the flavors get around each strand of bean and grandkids adore it!! no chunky cut beans here...Rozzie
Thanks for the recipe. It was very good.
A nice, basic green bean casserole. We used fewer dry onions than the recipe calls for, since I thought the onion taste would be overwhelming. Cream of mushroom soup works great in this recipe.
I am on a very limited budget, and needed something good for a potluck yesterday. It also needed to be quick and easy due to making it after church for an afternoon dinner. This was PERFECT ! I added small pearl onions , used condensed milk from another recipe I was making, and about 1/2 of a ham steak (diced) mixed in. I used 2 cans of french cut green beans, (drained), but it seemed a bit soupy, so I also added 1/2 bag of frozen french cut beans for consistancy. I used 1 1/2 cans of the french onions mixed in, (3 oz cans). Baked for 45 min due to added ingredients, then sprinkled some shredded cheddar and remaining french onions on top. Return to oven for an additional 5 to 8 min. Delicious ! This was the first empty empty dish up there ! Everyone loved it ! I will make it again for a Church potluck next weekend !
I don't really know how you go wrong with this recipe. It's so tried and true and so classic at this point. To me, it is the dish I crave at Thanksgiving (besides the family stuffing) the most.
Wonderful and simple. Delicious hit.
PS to my earlier review. I always use the frozen french cut green beans. Wonderful
For the amount of work (or little there of), this was was a great recipe.
Did not have the Dried Onions (left them sitting in the cart at the grocery store)...used Funyons instead...everyone raved!!! Crunched the Funyons and layered on the bottom. Put the mixture on top and cooked then 10 minutes out put more crunched Funyons on top with a sprinkle of cheese...DELICIOUS
I wasn't impressed with this recipe. I thought it was much to bland and the green beans turned out crunchy. I should have taken the advice of other reviewers to thaw the green beans first or used canned green beans instead. Next time I'll also add a little salt and maybe less milk so the cream of mushroom soup doesn't lose its flavor so much.
This is an easy recipie for Green Bean Casserole. I hate green bean casserole, but I made this for Thanksgiving this past year, and everyone else was pleased.
This was very good. I doubled the recipe and was loved by all!!
prettyn good, VERY easy!
This was easy but very bland. Probably would not make again.
I made 20 servings on this recipe for our Thanksgiving luncheon at work. I used 18 oz of french fried onions (more than the recipe called for because I like to cover the entire top) and about a cup of milk. The recipes for 20 servings calls for 2 1/2 cups of milk but I chose to use only 1 so the casserole wouldn't be too soupy. I got many compliments and everyone seemed to love it.
Instead of regular Cream of Mushroom soup, I either use Garlic Roasted Cream of Mushroom Soup or just add some garlic powder when stirring up the casserole.
This is the 'standard' recipe, one of my old standbys, especially for holidays and potlucks. It's super easy, cheap to make (maybe $6-8). Do note, however, if you're a pig like me and use a little extra on the french fried onions, this is super-fattening (15g in the soup, the box of onions, 84g). Unfortunately, I'm not the best at self-portion-control, so it is probably good that I only make this for 'special' occasions, in general!
this turned out really yummy! I used 4 cups of blanched fresh green beans and 2 1/2 cups of home made cream of mushroom soup for those portions. It was awesome!
This is my comfort food. Only thing I do differently is add some sharp cheddar cheese to the green bean mixture. Yum.
Use sour cream instead of milk and you will have a much better dish. The milk waters it down, sour cream thickens and gives it an amazing taste. TRUST ME on this it will become your familys fav.
This is similar to what I make...but for added flavor I add pieces of bacon on top. This is a favorite for all my relatives. I make every Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Wonderful! I made this recipe for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it! It was quick and simple! Thanks.
exactly what I was looking for... just added a little sour cream but made everything exact
made it for christmas. it was excellent
Delicious. Will make your pickiest eater get attached to green beans. Don't change a thing.
I change the recipe some: 40oz can green beans, 25oz can of cream of mushroom and the same amount of milk called in the recipe. Turns out creamy and delicious.
A wonderful, classic, GBC recipe. I've only made it once so far, but after reading some of the reviews, next time I might try mixing cheese in, and adding more soup/beans. The onions definitely are a must-have. You won't have leftovers! :)
MMMMMMM....bout says it all...
excellent, excellent love it.
I never had greenbean casserole before but hubby loves it so i tried making it today and it was wonderful. I used canned beans instead of frozen and used some condensed milk and a little water. It was fantastic this one is getting added to cycle of meals!!!
Excellent. Tasty. Just like my grandmother makes. I like it with the French Cut Green Beans that are shredded.
Perfect, simple, old-school. Loved it and will make it again.
Everyone's favorite, reminds us of Mom!
Wonderfully easy to make & tasty.
Great traditional green bean casserole. I used a 1/2 cup milk and it came out perfect.
simple and easy and very good
This was GREAT . I had to make more !
I don't care for anything canned so this was perfect for my family. My husband made this and turned out better then what I could have done.
Try it with the cream of mushroom soup with garlic and some fresh garlic and chopped onion. Then it's 5 stars!
I made these for a group of 7 people and everyone rated them. My rating was an average of the 7 people who tried this dish. This is a definitely good recipe I will prepare again, and it was easy.
I make this all the time! I use fat free milk and often add cheddar cheese and/or bacon for extra flavor. If using frozen green beans, make sure to defrost them first!
I love this recipe! I have made it twice now. Once for my daughters 1st birthday party and once last night. It has just enough salt and taste delicious. Everyone loved it!
Great classic recipe! I make this every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas!
Pretty good but a little runny.
I make this recipe a few special times a year. It is so easy to make and is always a hit. I kinda eyeball the amount of fried onions I put into it.
A CLASSIC - it is always requested for holiday dinners. I like this dish because it is easy to prepare ahead of time. I will often mix it up the day before a big dinner and I guess that the frozen beans thaw a bit in the refrigerator that way. Even if I bake it right away, I have never had a problem using frozen beans.
I made this for two different family Christmas parties and it was a hit! I still can't believe how easy it was to throw together. I used frozen french cut beans, thawed and drained and replaced the milk with sour cream. We had to travel and had limited oven use so we threw everything in a crock pot. I cooked for about an hour on high, turned it down to low for an hour and kept it at warm while we served it. I will be making this again and again.
This was delicious. I can't wait to make it again.
Im going to make this for Thanksgiving again this year. I always make it how it says but we like cayenne pepper with our green beans. So i ad like 1/4 to the soup green bean mixture. gooood stuff
I loved the onion in as well as on top
