Classic green bean casserole

I truly feel that green bean casserole is the most underrated recipe of Thanksgiving.

It combines my absolute favorite veggie with crispy onions.


It also happens to be incredibly easy.

It takes a whopping 5 minutes to prep and an additional 25 minutes to bake.

You can even mix it up the night before! When you are ready to bake pull it out of the refrigerator and sprinkle with onions before transferring to the oven.

How to make classic green bean casserole:

  1. Gather your ingredients. We like to use canned green beans for the ease but you can easily opt for a fresh cooked version!
  2. Mix together green beans, mushroom soup, milk, and a few seasonings.
  3. Pour into a casserole dish, top with crispy onions, and bake!

I'm a recent convert to the green bean casserole concept. My opinion: ANYTHING with those french fried onions on it is delicious. Just saying. Thanks for sharing! Mwa!

I've never been a fan of green bean casserole, but so many people are that I want to make it - I'm on a quest to adapt the recipe to eliminate the creamed soup! I know my aunt would love this, I'll have to share your recipe with her :)
