Easy Green Bean Casserole Recipe

I like to share creative ideas for moms, DIY, family fun, crafts, travel, recipes, party planning, shopping, discounts, gifts, and more.

In 2002 the Green Bean Casserole secured a place in food history when the Campbell company donated the original recipe card to the National Inventors Hall of Fame. The original recipe was invented in 1955 by Dorcas Reilly, a Campbell's employee. Dorcas is now known as the "Grandmother of the Green Bean Casserole".

Ingredients for Green Bean Casserole

  • 1 Can Cream Soup, 10.5 ounce, Mushroom or Chicken
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Soy Sauce
  • 2 Cans Green Beans, 14.5 ounces each
  • 1 Cup Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
  • 1 1/2 Cups French's French Fried Onions

The original recipe is delicious, but I change it up a little by adding cheddar cheese to the casserole. I also add extra fried onions - my family can't get enough of them and I only buy them for the holidays for this casserole. I bake my green bean casserole in a special dish I've had for years; it has the recipe printed in the bottom of the dish; a picture is below.

Unfortunately this baking dish is no longer available to purchase. However, I've included a good option for you that is perfect for this recipe because you can prepare, bake and serve the green bean casserole all in the same dish.
