Green Bean Casserole

4 cups Green Beans, stems removed, cut in half
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 cup Table Mushrooms, minced
2 cups Cream of Mushroom Soup
1/2 cup Milk
2 cups French Fried Onions


  • Blanch the Green Beans in a pot of water over high heat.
  • Preheat the Oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the Mushrooms, Garlic, Cream of Mushroom Soup, and 1 cup of the French Fried Onions together, mixing well.
  • Pour into a medium size casserole dish (about 1 1/2 quart or so).
  • Sprinkle the edges with the remaining cup of French Fried Onions like a border.
  • Bake in the Oven for 25 minutes, or until bubbly.

NOTES: So this is what I call a typical 1950s recipes… and you all know what I mean. If you can avoid using canned Cream of Mushroom soup, please do. You can always make some and store it in the freezer just for Thanksgiving. If you’re not sure what a French Fried Onion is…well you’re obviously an immigrant or non-American. A company called French’s makes a dehydrated french fry crunchy…onion thing…er…topping. If you do not have those available, try Funyuns. I’ve tried to make them on my own, but they just don’t turn out right. French’s has the monopoly.
