When it comes to Thanksgiving, everyone has a favorite classic dish that they love and MUST have at the dinner table! For me, that dish is Green Bean Casserole! Every year since I was a kid, I looked forward to this dish that included the famous Campbell’s® Cream of Mushroom Soup, Del Monte® Green Beans and French’s® Original Crispy Fried Onions!
One of the great things about Green Bean Casserole is that you can use canned green beans, which makes this dish quick and convenient. Growing up, we always used Del Monte canned green beans, and I have to say that it makes the best Green Bean Casserole! These green beans are a staple in my pantry because my kids absolutely love them!
A couple other nostalgic ingredients that are super important when making Green Bean Casserole are the Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup and French’s Crispy Fried Onions! Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup is another staple item in our pantry because it has so many uses! It adds a little extra flair to my chicken recipes, and it also makes a great gravy!
French’s Crispy Fried Onions are considered the “icing on the cake,” when it comes to Green Bean Casserole! It brings the whole dish together and provides this amazing crunch! Yum! I purchased all of these items at my local Publix during the promotion! Between November 9 and November 22, you can save big on a variety of products featured in the French’s, Del Monte and Campbell’s Extra Savings program, so be sure to head to your local Publix to stock up today! These products can be found in the canned vegetable and soup aisles.
Even though my mom’s Green Bean Casserole is super delicious, I decided to amp things up a little bit and add in a special ingredient, cheese…three different kinds of cheese, to be exact! I got the idea for this 3-Cheese Green Bean Casserole from my kids because they love to add cheese to everything, which includes green beans!
I would often prepare a pot of green beans with cheddar cheese and thought, “This taste really good!”. Then a lightbulb went off, and I decided to add this ingredient to my Green Bean Casserole! For this recipe, I used sharp cheddar cheese, smoked gouda cheese, and colby jack cheese.
Another great thing about this recipe is that it whips up in less than 10 minutes! Simply toss all of your ingredients into the bowl, reserving half of the cheese and crispy fried onions to sprinkle on top. Another special ingredient that takes this casserole to another level is sautéed onions! I like to chop a small onion into pieces and sauté them until they are soft, and add them to the casserole. It gives it a flavor that is out of this world! Trust me!
Once all of your ingredients are combined, pour into a casserole dish and top with the remaining cheese and crispy fried onions. Bake for about 30 minutes, and you’ll have a delicious dish that is ready for your Thanksgiving table! This 3-Cheese Green Bean Casserole is so cheesy but it also has those familiar classic flavors that remind you of the good times with family and friends! Enjoy!!
Here’s A Tip…
If your holiday season is super busy, you could totally prepare this casserole ahead of time. Just add the crispy fried onions before you put it in the oven, so that they keep their texture. You have so much to prepare at the holidays, why not make life simpler and do some prep work ahead of time? ?
