    I’ve made this this past 2 years for our Thanksgiving Lunch at work and I make it in the crockpot and it turns out so delicious. As a matter of fact when my son saw me putting it together he was upset that I wasn’t making it for our dinner that night. We love green bean casserole

    I love green bean casserole. I use fried onion rings. I break some up and mix in, then I cover the top of baking dish with them and bake for 35 minutes.

  176. Stacy Vazquez says:

    I made this but used fresh green beans, made my own homemade cream of mushroom soup and fried fresh sliced onions up. Tastes a lot better than frozen beans and canned soup That’s for sure. That’s one of the dishes my kids always ask me to bring.. and one of the first things to disappear!!

    Such a classic. Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without it. Recipe comes together so easy. Which is important when you have so much to do when preparing dinner for a crowd. This recipe is always a hit. Only downside is…. There’s never left overs!

    Super simple recipe, quick to prep ahead. Only complaint is you might want to let it sit/cool for about 20 minutes to start to solidify a little bit but it will still be piping hot .

    Make this every year. Its my SIL’s favorite side. He loves it. This year I used cream of chicken rather than mushroom since mom is allergic. It was really good!

  199. Jan says:

    The joke at our house was always “if anyone shows up at the door with a green bean casserole, don’t let them in” . I won’t be making this.

  209. Leone says:

    No one in my family likes green bean casserole, so I make green beans the way my Granny did. Fresh green beans cooked with chopped bacon and I sprinkle a few funions on top for crunch.

  210. Ashley P says:

    I have never made or eaten green bean casserole!

  211. Lisa says:

    Love making this, used cream of cheddar for a cheesy alternative!

  212. Julie McGuire says:

    My girls do not like mushrooms so instead of cream of mushroom soup we add cream of chicken. We omit the soy sauce and add more crunchy fried onions or garlic salt for flavor. They are picky eaters and don’t like a lot of veggies but will eat green beans this way so it is made often.

  213. Angela Lewis says:

    I make this every year and I mix in shredded cheese ?. One of my family favorites!

  214. Penny Kahl says:

    This is exactly how I make mine using the canned green beans. I love it!

    I normally don’t add the milk to my green bean casserole and have to have it every Thanksgiving and Christmas

  216. Katrina says:

    My mom use to make green beans with mushroom soup all the time when I was kid. We never had the onion on top. I forgot about beans like this. Will have to try with the onions. Looking forward to the extra twist. Thanks for the idea.

    We all love this recipe (well all except our 50 year old son who still not eat anything with butter, cream or. Sour cream). However, I don’t make it for Thanksgiving I will just make it on a whim any time of the year.
    This is the recipe I use EXCEPT I truly hate mushrooms. I have tried them every way possible. I really want to like they, but, nope, no way at all. I use Cream of Celery or Chicken. Such a great flavor side dish with those yummy onions on top.

  219. Olivia Starks says:

    I use a sour cream base instead of the canned soup it was actually really good

  220. Pat says:

    I make this every Thanksgiving.

  221. Kara Marks says:

    I love green bean casserole, but we don’t always have it. One year I tried a healthier version, with fresh green beans, no mushroom soup, but fresh mushrooms and slivered almonds—I don’t remember the substitute for the soup, but my boys didn’t like the healthier version as much.

  222. Aletha Neemann says:

    We make it multiple times throughout the year

  223. Randi says:

    My family loves my green bean casserole, that I named Damn Beans. I am not a fussy cook and like things simple. To make this, all you need is drained bacon bits with mushrooms, chez whip and green beans. Mix it all together and keep it warm in oven. Easy and yummy.

    We have green bean casserole every year for Thanksgiving (we have 3 family dinners so that’s a lot of casseroles). I like to add a little extra French Fried onions and mushrooms to mine. I also like to use cracked pepper vs. ground.

  229. Cathy says:

    Green bean casserole is a standing request from my father on the holidays and, of course, I’m always happy to make them for him. One thing I always do is add a small can of mushrooms. We love mushrooms and I like to incorporate them into my recipes when I get the chance. Try it!!

  230. Tara Jenkins says:

    Always make this for Thanksgiving!! I love to add shredded cheddar cheese to mine, makes it even more delicious!!

    I do not make green bean casserole because i am the only one who would eat it.

  232. Cindy Benson says:

    I also add a couple slices of American cheese. I just tear it into small pieces and shove it all around. Once the casserole is heated, I store it all up before putting the fried onions on top. Gives it a creamy cheesy boost. A friend passed that tip on to me in college and I’ve been doing it ever since.

    Come on you gotta have green bean casserole to be Thanksgiving. The only change I make is adding Bella mushrooms and topping it with sliced almonds. I just never liked the canned onions which others feel is a MUST !!!

    Green bean casserole is something I only discovered when I moved to NC from NY 19 years ago. I use canned beans and mix some of the crispy onions into the bean mixture as well as putting them on the top. It’s yummy the day of and definitely as a leftover.

  238. Sandra Surtees says:

    We always have green bean casserole at the holidays. It’s a must, ? yum.

  239. Kara says:

    We love GBC! we make it every year and add some cheese 🙂

  240. Sara Campbell says:

    I like to saute my green beans with garlic & bacon for a few minutes for a little extra flavor.

  241. Rita says:

    I always use cream of celery because my people don’t like mushrooms

  242. Cheryl says:

    This dish is mandatory at the table, per my BF! He LOVES IT!! I am not so smitten with it, I will have one serving and I am happy. My boys aren’t fans either but luckily, my bf and his family are so we don’t end up having to waste.
    As for the recipe, I have seen many different versions some use worcestershire some do not. I always add a little to mine. I tried to healthy it up a bit one year, and I used fresh green beans, and there was a revolt so I use the canned now all the time. I also added some chopped bacon to the green beans and that was a hit. I add it if I have it, leave it out if I don’t. It’s not a deal breaker.

  243. Megan Kielb says:

    I make this recipe every year and every year my husband still hates mushrooms so that’s more for me to eat!! It’s a win, win!

  246. Jeannie Buhler says:

    I put cheese in my green bean casserole. And we make it every year

  247. Carrie Barnard says:

    I would just make it the day before, but not cook it. Then on Thanksgiving just cook it according to the directions.

  248. Maya says:

    If I were to make this the day before Thanksgiving and reheat it in the oven the day of, how long should I heat it at and how long? Tia

    This is a really good tasting recipe, and the simplicity was amazing. I would highly recommend that others make this for dinner. I did add some extra dried onions to the top because I like that crunchiness. I was also out of milk, so I added the correct amount of mixed Instant Non-Fat Dry Milk. To my surprise there was not a noticeable difference.

  250. Carrie says:

    I left the green beans frozen and I used cut green beans but french green beans would work great too!

  251. angie Finazzo says:

    Do you leave the green beans frozen or do you cook them first. Do you use French green beans or cut green beans
