Each Thanksgiving and Christmas, I make the Green Bean Casserole Recipe. Usually, I go out to the garden and pick fresh green beans for the holidays. This year, the green beans were not yet growing on the plants for Thanksgiving, but they are forming now so I think we will have fresh green beans for Christmas! David loves this recipe. I have made it for many years. Yes, you can find the recipe on the back of crispy fried onions at the grocery store but I have made modifications over the years that our family loves.

You can actually serve this casserole as a one dish casserole meal by adding two cups of meat like chicken, turkey, or even ham before you bake. Sometimes, David likes to add grated cheese to the top during the last five minutes of baking. Your family will love this dish.

Green bean casserole is a great way to get your kids to eat vegetables. Plant green beans in your garden and have your children help you with them. They will be more willing to try veggies that they help to grow. You can get wonderful green bean seeds from David's Garden Seeds® here to plant in the spring and again in the fall if you live in a wonderful climate like Texas.

Green Bean Casserole Recipe

You will need:

  • 4 cups cooked green beans (fresh from the garden is best but you can use frozen or canned)
  • 1 can cream of golden mushroom soup
  • 1 jar sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 and 1/3 cups crispy fried onions

In a bowl, mix together the soup, milk and black pepper. Stir in the cooked green beans, mushrooms, and 2/3 cup of the crispy fried onions.

Pour into a sprayed 1 and 1/2 quart baking dish and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. Stir and then top with another 2/3 cup of crispy fried onions. Bake for five more minutes and serve.

If you would like to make this a one dish meal casserole, add 2 cups of chicken or turkey when you add the green beans. It is delicious!

Note: I usually have to double this recipe to feed ten to twelve people each holiday. Keep several cans of the fried onions on hand because they are delicious to eat plain. Otherwise, you may not have enough for the green bean casserole recipe--your family will sneak in the pantry and munch on them.
