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. [IMG]
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) [IMG]
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.

re: doubled recipe
I would bake it only a few minutes longer (this actually depends on the shape of your pan). Instead of baking for 30 min., bake for 40 min. It's ready when the edges just begin to bubble. At that point, just add the final topping of french fried onions and bake for 5 min.
