Green bean casserole is an important Holiday side dish in many homes across the USA! It is definitely a staple in our home.
I enjoy both styles of green beans, the regular and the French. You can choose whatever style you like best for this recipe.
This recipe is perfect! It had the creaminess of the soup and cheese along with the crunch of the fried onions and the snap of the green beans. Best of all worlds if you ask me.
Crunchy, Cheesy Green Bean Casserole
- 1 can or box of cream soup (choose your favorite flavor. Ex.: mushroom, celery or chicken)
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1 can French fried onions (about 3 ounces)
- 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or mozzarella)
- 1 package frozen green beans (French) OR 2 cans (drained) regular
Preheat oven to 325*.
Spray an 8x8 baking dish with butter spray.
In a bowl, combine soup, milk, cheese and half of the fried onions. Mix well.
Place half of the green beans into the baking dish.
Pour half of the soup mixture over the beans.
Repeat layering one more time.
Top with remaining fried onions and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until bubbly.
This recipe is easily doubled. If you double it, us a 9x13 baking dish.
