Recipe File: Campbell's Green Bean Casserole

Green bean casserole is a classic homestyle favorite in American homes. This particular recipe from Campbell's is probably the most popular recipe for green bean casserole. Not only is it easy to make, but it's delicious. The "correct" way to make Campbell's Green Bean Casserole is, of course, to use Campbell's brand Condensed Cream of Mushroom soup and French's brand Original French Fried Onions. Of course, any other brand of cream of mushroom and french fried onions will do.

Assemble the ingredients: 3/4 cup whole milk, 1/8 tsp. pepper, 10-3/4 oz. can cream of mushroom, two 14.5 oz. cans of cut green beans, and 1-1/3 cups french fried onions.

Open the cans and drain the water from the green beans. Pour all the ingredients except for 2/3 cup onions into a 1-1/2 quart casserole (I used a 8 in. square baking pan)


Bake at 350°F (175°C) for 30 minutes.

After thirty minutes in the oven, the casserole should be nice and hot. Take it out and top with the reserved onions. Bake for an additional five minutes.

Eeek, yeah. Brings back memories.

I attempted to cook my way through a 1965 Campbell's cook book. I couldn't do it. Just too darned icky and when I found myself searching for Cream of Shrimp I called it quits.

yes, they really do make cream of shrimp soup...and yes it is as digusting as it sounds (i lost a bet once and had to eat some straight...not a pleasant memory)

I must take exception to your statement that any other brand of cream of mushroom soup would do. I want to warn against the store brands! I am frugal (okay, okay--cheap!) and have tried the store brands and they are SO not worth the few pennies saved. In fact, they taste so bad, they'll ruin what you put them in!
Now, maybe brands that are MORE expensive than Campbell's would work (haven't tried any of those!), but do yourself a favor and do not use store brands.

This is one of my favorite potluck recipes (cuz hubby doesn't care for it, I don't make it at home)

Using frozen green beans is tastier than canned.

Happy cooking!

I agree, using frozen green beans is a tastier option for this casserole.

I like to add a bit (I don't measure... maybe 2 teaspoons worth) of Worcestershire sauce to my green bean casserole. Of course, you must use name brand Lea and Perrins :)
