Green Bean Casserole Recipe

green bean casserole
Here is another fantastic recipe for the Holidays, green bean casserole. This is nothing but a classic right here. Chances are many of you already have your own recipe for this but this one is a little different. This recipe has whole mushrooms in the casserole and uses fresh green beans. I always prefer fresh green beans over the canned or frozen kind but if you cannot find fresh, frozen will work as well. The process of making this dish is fairly simple. The green beans are boiled in chicken broth until tender and then mixed into a cream of mushroom soup mixture, placed into a casserole dish and baked in the oven.  If you are looking for a delicious green bean casserole recipe for the holidays, give this one a try. Enjoy.

    I always see this dish in commercials during the holidays and I’ve always wanted to try it. Now I guess I have no excuse not to make it! Thanks :)

    This dish is different than the usual Campbells one which uses canned green beans and doesn’t use any cheese, I don’t think.Cooking the fresh green beans in chicken broth and adding fresh mushrooms makes it really amazing. I added some dry sherry when I cooked the mushrooms which I cooked off. YUM! Thanks, Bobby for all your wonderful recipes.

    I like the idea of using fresh instead of canned. I am using this recipe for thanksgiving!

    Do you think this could be made to the last step and then refrigerated to be baked the next day? I <3 that this recipe calls for fresh green beans!

    Leigh-Anne- Yes I don’t see why not, but I would leave out the french fried onions until right before baking if you like them crispy.
