Cooking Tips

  1. Never Skip The Fried Onions

One ingredient that is as important to green bean casserole as green beans is French fried onions. They are salty, crunchy and totally compulsory. It gives it that tasty reminiscent touch.

  1. Fresh, Frozen Or Canned Green Beans Can Be Used

Green beans are not always in season, frozen green beans have been conserved at their peak, so they can be compared to the fresh green bean in terms of taste. However, you can boil frozen or fresh ones to get them tender but not with canned green beans.

  1. Fresh Green Beans: Cut the ends, put in a microwave safe bowl with a tablespoon of water and wrap with a wet paper towel and microwave for five minutes. Drain and pat dry.
  2. Frozen Green Beans: Microwave the green beans long enough to soften, drain and pat dry
  • Canned Green Beans: No need to microwave after draining the water and patting green beans dry.

  1. First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Next, mix the green beans, mushroom soup, milk, black pepper, cheddar cheese and fried onions in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Then, add the mix to a baking dish.
  4. Furthermore, cook in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
