Here's the best recipe for making this classic side dish.

Green bean casserole is one of the easiest side dishes to add to your Thanksgiving table. This is a tried-and-true recipe that will perfectly complement your turkey, stuffing, and potatoes. Ready? Let's get started!


1 can cream of mushroom soup
3/4 cup milk
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper (table pepper)
1 bag of frozen green beans
1.33 cups of Durkee French Fried Onions, divided


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

Boil or microwave frozen green beans, according to package instructions.

In a 1.5-quart baking dish, stir together cream of mushroom soup, milk, and pepper. Add the cooked green beans and two-thirds of a cup of the French fried onions. Stir together.

Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees or until hot and bubbly. Take the casserole out of the oven and stir it. Add the remaining French fried onions to the top. Return the pan to the oven and bake for 5 more minutes or until the fried onions on the top are golden brown.

Note: Some people prefer to use Funyuns instead of French fried onions. I've never tried that method, but it could make the final product a bit zestier! Also, this is a good recipe to double so that you have plenty available for leftovers!
