Thanksgiving: Classic Green Bean Casserole

Thanksgiving is the one time of year that I have the urge to cook with cans of condensed soup. I love green bean casserole, and haven’t ever tried to make a “healthy” version of it. This year, I finally made it with fresh green beans instead of canned, and it really improved the flavor.

Green Bean Casserole

Classic Green Bean Casserole

1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup (Regular, 98% Fat Free or Healthy Request®)

Stir the soup, milk, soy sauce, black pepper, beans and 2/3 cup onions in a 1 1/2-quart casserole.

Bake at 350°F. for 25 minutes or until the bean mixture is hot and bubbling. Stir the bean mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining onions.

Bake for 5 minutes or until the onions are golden brown.

  • Just wanted to let you know I made your classic green bean casserole for with our turkey, yay! to you, it was a hit, thanks so much.

  • Ah….good ol’ classic green bean casserole!! Happy Thanksgiving America! x

  • Gloria

    can this be made ahead and frozen?

    • I have never tried doing that, but if you do try it, save some of the onions for the topping and put those on fresh, that way they’ll still be crispy. Let me know how it turns out!

    I’ve never heard of putting soy sauce in this casserole so I think I’ll leave it out 🙂

    • I’ve never made it without – it may just need a little extra salt if you leave it out. Hope it works for ya! 🙂

      Soy sauce is good in cooking trying different ways of cooking is a good thing

  • we do the paleo thing at my house mainly and don’t have soy sauce, just coconut aminos. do you think that would be a good substitute for the soy sauce?

  • Heather

    How many does this feed?

    • Campbell’s site says it serves 6. I’d say if you’re serving it with a lot of other sides (like a lot of people do on Thanksgiving), it can easily serve more. Hope that helps!

    I use broccoli instead of beans. Really good that way.

    • Ooh! That sounds like a fun variation. I don’t use broccoli nearly enough but I really like it a lot!

    Best recipe for green bean casserole! I just tweaked mine n added some cream of chicken too! Also add some onion salt and garlic salt . It will add a little more flavor. I doubled the recipe for a 13×9 pan n also added a half can cream of chicken. Otherwise I thought it was too dry. I like the dish creamier!

    • Creamier is definitely better in these types of comfort food dishes. I’ve been making one the last few years that doesn’t use the canned soup and it’s been a BIG hit with my family!
