    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.
  • 2 Bake 30 minutes or until hot. Stir.

    Can you make Green Bean Casserole ahead of time? Sure!

    Prepare this casserole right up until the baking step (Step 2) and freeze it! Thaw in the fridge the night before baking or increase the bake time by 15 minute increments until the center reaches 160°F.

  • 4 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.

TIPS AND TRICKS

Choose zucchini under 8 inches in length – these will be the most tender and will have undeveloped seeds.
