Excellent beans! I thought next time I'd add one more can of beans though.. and I only used a quarter of a small container of those french fried onions - there's no way I could have put 6 ounces on them!
I was fully prepared to love this. But the ratio of the onions to the green beans was off. There were way too many onions and not enough green beans! Also, the omission of milk or other liquid with the soup base made it a little too thick. If you make this, add some water or milk, double the green beans, and go light with the fried onions!
I served this for Christmas dinner and my family enjoyed it. I used 2 cans of beans and added some grated cheddar cheese and a couple tablespoons of milk. My personal preference is to mix the can of onions into the casserole right before I put it in the oven, rather than putting the onions on top. My sister-in-law made it one year for Thanksgiving by adding a can of creamed corn and it was surprisingly very good.
I really appeciate that fact that this is real the real deal. Green bean casserole without all the extras. Fast and easy to make. My family loves the traditional recipe. Thank you for posting it.
A little too soupy..maybe less soup next time? I also think it would be better with fresh green beans opposed to canned.
Made this as a side dish tonight. Was very delicious!! I was cooking for a family of 8 and two guests and was dissappointed to know that I only had 2 cans of french style green beans. Next time I will use 3 cans of french style green beans and the 1 can of cream of mushroom soup and the french fried onion topping (I only used as much as I wanted, not the whole can, which is how I read the recipe). The children gobbled it up! Yummmmmy!
Very good! I tried it with fat free Cream of Mushroom Soup and it was "ok". Next time, I think I'll follow the recipe and go with the real thing. Incredibly easy!!!
Great recipe. I made it exactly as written, except with half of the french fried onions. It is very simple, easy, and quick -- thanks!!! I will be making this a lot.
