This is soooo easy to make you can close your eyes and execute! If you thought you could never whip up a pleasin’ dish, you are wrong because this baby is probably the easiest casserole ever.
Prep time – 5 minutes
Cooking time – 30 minutes
Gone in – 60 seconds (okay, maybe more…)
A perpetual crowd pleaser, pleasing even those who don’t touch green beans. I first tried this at Aunty A’s house for a National Day Gathering and have never looked back since. This was my first attempt and seriously, it’s no fail (unless you leave it in the oven for forever…).
This recipe was from the back of the French’s Original French Fried Onions can. What are french fried onions? I wikied it as usual so read it here. It’s also a tad similar to Chinese fried onions or in my vocab ‘yew chang’ except that the western version uses the larger onion variety. But it can be hard to find and expensive in Singapore. It’s readily available in Western countries and cheap too.
Essentially, I forgot to add 2 ingredients. However, the casserole still turned out great so it comes to show that with just 3 ingredients you can be in comfort food heaven. Also, it probably would be healthier to use fresh green beans, if possible though the canned or frozen variety just makes things more convenient. If using fresh beans, cook them for about 5 minutes in boiling water first.
Green Bean Casserole
Serves about 6
- 3/4 cup milk (I forgot to add this and it still turned out great)
- 1/8 tsp pepper (I forgot to add this too)
- 1 (10 3/4 oz) can of Campbell’s Mushroom soup
- 2 (14.5 oz) cans of cut green beans, drained (I used 3 cans) or 18 oz frozen cut green beans, thawed
- 1 1/3 cups of French fried onions
1. Mix all the ingredients together except 2/3 cup of the french fried onions. Bake in oven-safe casserole dish for about 25-30 minutes. Top with the remaining onions and bake another 5 minutes or until onions are golden.
