Classic Campbells Green Bean Casserole is the perfect holiday side dish. Easy to make and tastes amazing! This is the classic green bean casserole we all grew up with.
Campbells Green Bean Casserole
While this Campbells Green Bean Casserole is one you are expecting as a holiday recipe you can serve it any day. This easy vegetable casserole is a great side dish for any family meal.
I love that this side dish recipe only takes six ingredients. This recipe has been a holiday classic recipe for over 60 years.
One thing you will notice that is different between the Campbells Green Bean Casserole and the French's Green Bean Casserole is the soy sauce. You can leave the soy sauce out if you do not like the flavor but it does add a bit of depth to the flavors of the recipe.
I read that 20 million families serve this classic green bean casserole for the holidays. It was originally created by Dorcas Reilly in 1955. She was one of the first full-time employees with the Campbells Soup Company.
The original name for Campbell's Green Bean Casserole was Green Bean Bake.
- Campbells Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
- Soy Sauce
- Black Pepper
- Green Beans
- French's French Fried Onions
Green beans - You can use 2 cans of 14.5 oz green beans drained, 16 to 20 oz of frozen green beans that have been thawed, or 1.5 pounds of fresh green beans. We like to use cut cooked green beans from a can but you can use any type of green beans that you have available.
Bacon - If you want to give this a bit of a meatier flavor you can add in a couple of slices of crumbled cooked bacon.
Cream of Mushroom Soup - If your family is not a fan of cream of mushroom soup you can easily switch this for the cream of chicken or other varieties.
Soy Sauce - You can omit the soy sauce if you are not a fan of it.
Milk - The heavier the milk you use the creamier your casserole will be.
French's French Fried Onions - I buy a bigger container than what I am going to need for this recipe. My husband loves to snack on these fried onions and there have been a few times I have gone to sprinkle with the remaining fried onions only to find the container a lot emptier than I planned on it being.
You can stir in ½ cup of shredded cheddar cheese to make this recipe even richer and perfect for cheese lovers.
For a fun Christmas look stir in ¼ cup chopped red peppers.
If you want a bit of crunch you can add in ¼ cup of toasted almonds.
1.5-quart casserole dish - This is equal to a 9x9 baking dish. You can use a larger casserole dish but the green bean casserole will spread out and you may need more fried onions.
Salt and Pepper can be added or removed based on the flavor you enjoy.
Top this shredded cheddar cheese for a fun twist on classic green bean casserole.
This recipe can easily be doubled if you are serving a crowd.
You can make this recipe a day or two ahead of time if you need to save time during the holidays. Prep it all the way to right before baking. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and store it in the fridge. Add French Fried Onions right before you bake the Campbells Green Bean Casserole.
I buy extra French Fried Onions and serve them in a bowl next to the green bean casserole. Just in case guests want to cover their green beans with even more french fried onion goodness.
