For the green beans, you can use 2 bags (16 to 20 ounces each) frozen green beans, thawed, 4 packages (9 ounces each) frozen green beans, thawed, 4 cans (14.5 ounces each) green beans, drained orabout 3 pounds fresh green beans.
For extra crunch, add 1/2 cup toasted sliced almonds to the onion topping.
For bacon lovers, add 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled, to the bean mixture.
For a festive touch, add 1/2 cup chopped red pepper with the soup.
For cheese lovers, stir in 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese with the soup. Omit the soy sauce. Sprinkle with an additional 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese when adding the remaining onions.
For Golden Green Bean Casserole, substitute Campbell's® Condensed Golden Mushroom Soup for the Cream of Mushroom Soup. Omit the soy sauce. Stir in 1/2 cup chopped red pepper with the green beans.
For Slow Cooker Green Bean Casserole: Omit the milk. Stir the soup, soy sauce, black pepper, beans and 1 1/3 cups onions in a 6-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours or until the beans are tender. Stir. Sprinkle with the remaining onions.
I used cream of onion soup as I am not a huge mushroom fan, but that is neither here nor there. The only thing I would definitely do differently is to omit the soy sauce. The recipe is salty enough without it and it turned the casserole an upappetizing brown color :\
I grew up with this recipe but I don't care for mushroom soup. Thanks to the Campbell's hotline I use Cream of Celery soup. great flavor. I took it to a community potluck Thanksgiving dinner and the dish was scraped clean! I use a 9x13 inch casserole for this larger version. That way everyone gets some of the topping!. I have also used panko bread crumbs and slivered almonds.
I grew up with this recipe. But, as an adult, I've tried other "fancy" recipes. Know what? I keep being told to go back to "this" recipe with the Campbell's soup. Now remember, this is Thanksgiving. There is no such thing as "low fat/no fat."
First off - the "bacon" is a must. Save the bacon fat! (Slack back on the soy - you won't want that salt at the end.)
Can use chopped roasted red peppers - spice of color.
Saute 1+ cup of chopped onion (or real thin slices if you prefer) in the bacon fat from the bacon you cooked! (or 1-2 tbl butter) until tender, but not soggy. < --- If you use butter, go with no salt sweet cream butter if you're concerned about adding too much salt.
Add 8+ ozs (you decide how much) of sliced fresh mushrooms to the onion and saute until slightly soft - not all the way cooked. You want a "fresh" but cooked taste. (Or put them in a couple tablespoons of low sodium chicken broth in a pan to rapid cook, and drain them to get slightly cooked fast)
Fresh green beans, cooked in low sodium Swanson chicken broth or Campbell's chicken broth - blanch if you must to stop the cooking - Remember you still want a little of the delicious green bean snap. Frozen if you don't have a choice.
This is Thanksgiving people! Go big, or go home! You won't fail with this recipe, and there won't be any leftovers, either! This is the "go to" now. Don't bother with other recipes.
My family loves this recipe. I usually add 4 slices of bacon (hickory or apple wood smoked) that has been cooked to a crisp and drip some of the drippings onto the green beans. I also add cheddar cheese and thawed bags of frozen whole green beans. My husband and oldest child are very picky when it comes to vegetables, but every year they always ask me to make this for the holidays.
