Homemade Green Bean Casserole Recipe


Green Bean Casserole is a staple food item for so many holiday gatherings. I’m personally not a big fan of canned food and EVERYTHING in traditional green bean casserole typically comes from a can. With this recipe, everything is totally homemade so you get to control the salt and fat content! You can pre-make the cream of mushroom soup and oven-fried onion rings ahead of time so that the day of your gathering all you do is steam the green beans and put it all together!

Homemade Green Bean Casserole Recipe
  1. Cut ends off of the fresh green beans and then slice them in half. Steam the green beans until cooked through.
  2. Mix cooked green beans with the cream of mushroom soup. Add as much or as little of the soup as you want, depending on how much soup you want in your casserole. Mix some of the oven-fried onions in there with the green bean/soup mixture.
  3. Top the mixture with the rest of the oven-fried onions. Bake at 350 degrees until heated through and onions are at the desired crunchiness.
