Classic Green Bean Casserole Recipe

Ingredients List

2 cans Cream of Mushroom Soup

2 tablespoons Butter

1/2 of on Onion

2 Garlic Cloves

1 cup Milk

2 1/2 teaspoons Soy Sauce

8 cups Green Beans

3 cups French Fried Onions

Salt & Pepper to taste

 

Cooking Directions

Step 1:

Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Also begin heating a large pot of salted water that will be used to blanch the green beans. 

Step 2: 

Obtain another large bowl to fill with ice and water, this will be the ice bath for blanching the green beans. Cook the green beans for 5 minutes in the boiling water, strain them, and then put them in the ice bath to stop the cooking process. 

Step 3:

Chop the onion and garlic to prepare. Melt butter in a small pan and cook the onion and garlic for roughly 4 minutes until slightly browned. 

Step 4:

Stir cream of mushroom soup, milk, soy sauce, green beans, onion/garlic mixture, and 1 1/2 cups French fried onions in a bowl, mixing thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Step 5:

Using a standard casserole dish, pour all of the ingredients inside of the dish until even. Cook for 25 minutes. 

Step 6: 

Sprinkle remaining French fried onions on the top of the casserole. Bake for an additional 5 minutes. 

 

Can Green Bean Casserole Be Made in Advance?

Yes, green bean casserole can be cooked ahead and stored. 

Most will last around 48 hours when adequately stored. I recommend cooking the night before and simply covering with foil and storing in the fridge. 

 

How Long to Cook Green Bean Casserole In Oven?

How long to cook green bean casserole depends on the temperature you plan to cook at. Most recipes you’ll find will average around 350F and that’s good because anything too high can burn the outside of the casserole while undercooking the inside. 

This recipe uses 350F and at that temperature, it will take roughly 30 minutes to cook fully. 

 

How To Keep Green Bean Casserole Warm

There are multiple ways to keep green bean casserole warm after cooking. Depending on the time it was cooked and how it was cooked will make a difference, but there’s a solution for everything!

If you’ve made it like I did in this recipe, then depending on the casserole dish you used, it’s possible to use warmers but that’s only if the dish material is safe to use on them. 

My personal method is to usually retain it’s heat by covering in foil and slightly reheating in the oven before serving. 

 

Fresh Green Beans vs Frozen for Green Bean Casserole

I may not have the most sensitive taste buds on earth, but I don’t notice an incredible difference in taste between fresh green beans and frozen green beans. By the end of cooking, the only difference that I seem to notice is that of texture. 

The texture only differs because of the fresh ones not being precooked usually, but they still taste just as good to me. 

There may be some health differences between frozen green beans and fresh green beans due to additives/preservatives, but that will depend on the brand you buy.  

 

Is Green Bean Casserole Keto?

Most green bean casserole recipes won’t be keto if they used cream of mushroom soup and French fried onions like this one. They are both higher carb ingredients and should be substituted if you plan on having a keto friendly green bean casserole.

Is Green Bean Casserole Low FODMAP?

The recipe here is not low FODMAP and most green bean casserole recipes aren’t. The cream of mushroom soup is already a deal killer if you’re looking for a low FODMAP recipe.
