Green bean casserole is one of our favorite vegetable side dishes. That may possibly stem from relating it to Thanksgiving, and sitting down together with the entire family. This green bean casserole makes it to most family parties and brings back a flood of happy memories.
Green bean casserole is great as a side dish for ham or turkey dinners. You can easily adapt it to feed a crowd. You can double or triple this recipe.
The best green beans to use in this recipe
We like using canned cut green beans for this easy green bean casserole, but you could also use French Style cut green beans. We have found that any brand of green beans is great. We are all about a good deal and sometimes store brands are less expensive than name brands. Fresh green beans would also work, but they would need to be cooked thoroughly before adding them to the recipe.
How to MAKE green bean casserole
We love how easy green bean casserole is to prepare because you only dirty one pan; the one that it is cooked in.
Combine the soup, milk, and pepper and then fold in the green beans. Sprinkle the french fried onions on top, then bake. It’s that simple. We are usually very generous with the french fried onions because they add the perfect crunch and taste to the casserole.
