To some, this dish is the highlight of any holiday table. Plus, it counts as a vegetable in the middle of all those starchy sides. Topped with French’s Original Crispy Fried Onions …. wait, does that mean it counts for two veggies?!

    How to Make Green Bean Casserole:


    Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix cream of mushroom soup, milk and pepper in 1 1/2-quart baking dish. Stir in green beans and 2/3 cup Crispy Fried Onions.
    Make green bean casserole with canned, frozen (thawed) or fresh green beans. If using fresh green beans, they work best when blanched beforehand so they fully cook in the oven along with the creamy mushroom sauce.
  • 2 Bake 30 minutes or until hot. Stir.
  • 3 Top with remaining 2/3 cup onions. Bake 5 minutes longer or until onions are golden brown. Can you make Green Bean Casserole ahead of time? Sure!
    • Prepare this casserole through Step 1. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and a layer of foil for extra freezer burn protection. Freeze until ready to serve.
    • Thaw in the refrigerator the night before baking, then start with Step 2 (Make sure to remove the plastic wrap and foil).
    • To bake from frozen, let stand 10 minutes at room temperature. Start with Step 2, but increase the bake time in 15 minute increments until the center reaches 160°F.

TIPS AND TRICKS

Test Kitchen Tips:
• For a kick of spice, double the black pepper in this green bean casserole recipe to 1/4 teaspoon and prepare as directed.
• If using fresh or frozen green beans, make sure to cook them first! Blanch fresh green beans until tender, or steam frozen beans as directed on package.
• To feed a crowd, double the recipe and prepare in a 13x9-inch baking dish. Use an entire 6-ounce container of Crispy Fried Onions, reserving 1 1/3 cup for the topping. Increase cooking time to 40 minutes or until heated through.
