In all of my years, I have never tried Green Bean Casserole. As a matter of fact, I have never been in the same room as a Green Bean Casserole. 

Around the holidays, I have seen commercials for Campbell’s Green Bean Casserole. I have also seen it advertised in magazines, but before today, I had never tried it. 

I am not sure why it took me so long to try this dish. I love green beans and I love crunchy little onion bites.

I may have avoided this holiday side dish because I knew that one ingredient was cream of mushroom soup. To be honest, the thought of cream of mushroom soup has always made me feel ill in the tummy. 

Since I had somehow avoided Green Bean Casserole for all of my life, I decided that it was time that I try it but after looking at Campbell’s Green Bean Casserole recipe I knew that I needed to make quite a few changes to it. 

This side dish is very easy to make and uses very few ingredients. 

  • 1 stick of butter
  • 3 cups of fresh green beans, stems snapped off
  • 4 – 5 strips of cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 1 can (10 1/2 oz) Cream of Mushroom soup
  • 1 1/3 cups of French Fried Onions
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Melt 1 stick of butter in a pot
  • Add green beans, garlic, onions, and bacon to the pot
  • Cover but stir often and cook until green beans can be cut through easily 

  • Once green beans are cooked completely, transfer them into a bowl
  • Stir in the cream of mushroom soup
  • Add 1/2 cup of cheese and stir 

  • Add mixture into a casserole dish
  • Top with remaining cheese and french fried onions 
  • Bake for 15 minutes
  • Let stand for 5 minutes
  • Serve

I was very impressed with this Green Bean Casserole recipe. The use of fresh green beans along with the use of bacon made a huge impact on the outcome of this side dish.

If you choose to make this recipe my biggest piece of advice is to avoid adding salt. There is quite a bit of salt in the other ingredients that no extra salt is needed.
