BEST EVER Green Bean Casserole

I know....everyone makes green bean casseroles.  But all casseroles are not the same.

This one is 'special' for a number of reasons...

I think you get the best taste with the best quality...be sure to use name brand soup.  And french fried onions (or make homemade - click here for my recipe). 

This one also has cheese and a few spices like...garlic and onion powder. 
It goes together very quickly...and is gone just as fast. 

Since my son prefers the french cut green beans, that's what I used, but regular cut works just as good too. Use whatever your family prefers.  

You can opt to add some chopped water chestnuts for crunch (a partial can) or even some fresh cooked bacon. Add all the cheese to the casserole and only onions on top...whatever turns your crank. 

Go for it!


BEST EVER GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE 

2 (14 ozs) cans green beans, drained 
(cut or french cut)
1 (10.75 ozs) can Campbell's cream of mushroom soup
1/3 c. milk
garlic and onion powder to taste
(about 1/4 tsp. each) 
1 (6 ozs) can french fried onions 
1 c. shredded cheddar (or cojack) cheese, optional

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray 1-1/2 qt. casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray. 

In large bowl, combine drained green beans, soup, milk, spices and half the onions and half the cheese.  (Heat in the microwave 3 - 5 minutes to cut back on baking time if desired). 

Bake in oven for 25 minutes (if you microwaved first, bake for 15 minutes). Remove from oven - top with remaining cheese, then top with french fried onions.  Bake another 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. 

Yield: about 6 servings
