Classic Green Bean Casserole


2 cups green beans, sliced (from my local farmers’ market.)

2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon olive oil

½ cup onion, diced (I used a yellow onion.)

½ cup mushrooms, sliced (I used cremini mushrooms.)

2 cups cream of mushroom soup (I used homemade soup.)

1 cup french fried onions (I used Trader Joe’s.)

¼ teaspoon granulated garlic

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon black pepper

1 cup shredded cheese (I used cheddar and Italian mix)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease an 8x8 inch baking dish with nonstick spray.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add green beans.  Boil for about 5 minutes and drain.

In a large pan, over medium heat, add butter and olive oil.  Add onions and mushrooms, sauté for about 5 minutes until softened and browned. 

Add in green beans to onions and mushrooms.

Stir in cream of mushroom soup.  Add in garlic, salt and pepper. 

Stir in ½ cup french fried onions.

Pour mixture into 8x8 inch baking dish.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and top with shredded cheese and remaining ½ cup French fried onions. 

Bake for additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Serves 6.
