Seriously one of my favorite side dishes. I know that we probably all have had, or use, the Campbell's soup recipe, but I know there has to be a better way.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with campbell's soup, but I try to not use condensed soups, if I don't have to.

Below is a new "modernized" recipe for the beloved dish.

Green Bean Casserole


•8 ounces fresh baby bella or shitaake mushrooms, brushed clean, trimmed, and quartered

•2 - 3 TB butter 

•1 pound frozen french cut green beans, cooked for 3 minutes and drained

•1 TB flour 

•1/2 cup heavy cream, half-and-half or milk

•2 teaspoons soy sauce

•1 can (2.8 ounces) French's fried onions, 

•1/8 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper, or to taste

•Kosher salt to taste


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. F. 

Place a heavy skillet over medium high heat. When pan is hot, add mushrooms and butter. Sprinkle lightly with salt. Saute mushrooms on high until browned.  Lower heat and add the flour.  Mix well for 1 minute.  Add the cream and a little milk,  add white pepper and stir until it thickens.  You may need to add more milk if sauce is too thick even though  you want a consistency similar to that of condensed cream soup.

Add beans, and soy sauce. Mix until combined. 

Pour green bean mixture into a 1-1/2 quart casserole dish. Add fried onions to cover.  Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until bubbly and the onions are browned and crispy.
