Classic green bean casserole is a great side year round! It’s super easy to make and perfect for a crowd.
You know what? I think that we should have Thanksgiving once a month. Yup. We should. Thanksgiving food is just the best. Plus being able to hang out with family and friends around the dinner table is literally my favorite thing ever.
Give me all the oven roasted turkey and crock pot sweet potatoes. ALL OF IT.
Oh and just step aside when it comes to this classic green bean casserole. I’ll take care of it. It’s my all time favorite after thanksgiving breakfast dish. I love me some leftover cold green bean casserole the next morning.
Classic green bean casserole ingredients
To make this classic green bean casserole, either for Thanksgiving or just as an everyday side dish, you will need:
- green beans
- cream of mushroom soup
- french fried onions
You need a bunch of green beans for this recipe. I used four 14.5 ounce cans to make this recipe in my 9×13 baking dish. Feel free to use more or less, just adjusted your other ingredients to accommodate.
This classic green bean casserole calls for 2 10.5 ounce cans of cream of mushroom soup. You can use store bought or try your hand at homemade cream of mushroom soup.
The secret to making this classic green bean casserole is the fried onions. I use French’s fried onions and I use a lot. I add some to my casserole and then I also add them to the topping. It makes it slightly unique but still a classic.
