Green Bean Casserole

This Green Bean Casserole is seriously the best thing I ever ate! My sister is the keeper of the recipe. She make it every year.  It’s her thing. It’s scrumptious. I love it. I always pray there is enough leftover for me to bring some home and have for lunch the next day!

Is Green Bean Casserole part of your Thanksgiving Meal?

I decided that I should share this recipe with my beloved readers, so I asked my Seestor if she would be so kind as to let me have the recipe to share.

She said YES!

But then I got her email with the ingredients. I emailed her right back and said, “Seriously….this is what’s in your FAMOUS Green Bean casserole?!!”.

“Yup..that’s all there is to it.”

“Hmmmmm are you sure you’re not holding something back on me?”

“NO! Yes! Sheesh. Why would I do that?”……….

Me…, “Cause you’re sassy!”


Here it is…… drum roll please!


Ok – I use 6 cans of green beans, 3 french style and 3 regular cut
I think I use 4 cans of mushroom soup….pretty sure 3 or 4.  😉
1/2 of a large ‘log’ of Velveeta – cut into small cubes (the smaller they are, the easier they will get all melty in there)
Large can of French’s onions – original kind
Mix everything together along with 1/2 of the can of onions.  Plop in in a baking dish and put the rest of the onions on top.  
Voila!  amazing bean casserole!
I think I bake it for like 30 min at 375.
Those are her exact directions….see why I was like What the Heck?! no garlic powder, Worcestershire Sauce, or pepper?
Well I have to admit it’s EASY! And I’m ALL about easy!  I’m also, all about plopping globs of goodness in a pan, covering it with french fried onions, and letting it get all bubbly!
Please BELIEVE me this is so good…It’s crazy!
 Drain beans.  Mix beans, cream of mushroom soup, diced Velveeta chunks, and 1/2 large can of french fried onions together. Plop in a baking dish.  Sprinkle with the rest of the french fried onions, and bake.

Voila! This is seriously not legal.


I know I got some friends out there who are totally grossed out to the max right now.  You can’t even believe I eat this stuff.  I know who you are.  And I love you…but I just gotta say…..

It’s time to dip your toe in my pool…come on in the waters fine. It’s just one day out of the whole gol darn year for heavens sake!  I’ts not like I’m walking around the house  lickin’ on a Velveetacicle!

Ok whatevs!

More for me and my Seestor!

  1. Green bean casserole is my fave right next to the sweet potato bake. I’ve never had green beans with cheese, but we will try it this year – my two sons-in-law will eat everything. Have you ever tried golden mushroom soup in place of the regular? Adds a little “tang” – I like tang. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

    1. I have not tried the golden mushroom soup…I will have to do that! Happy Thanksgiving to your family too Janey!! xo, Sheila

  2. This is how my mother makes/has made green bean casserole for years! It is the best! But instead of putting the french fried onions on top before baking, she bakes it then puts them on and bakes it for about 5 more minutes. Sooo good! This is the only way I’ll eat green bean casserole.

  3. OK, OK…this is not my favorite side dish of the Thanksgiving feast but maybe, just maybe, I will put a “glob” of it on my plate this year if it is filled with all that yummy stuff!

    1. HA! I think its funny you knew I was talking about you…but there are others out there that feel the same way you do. So sad. xoxoxo

  4. I’m not hatin’ on this, Sheila! Definitely not a food snob and I have one tried-and-true casserole recipe I love that contains Velveeta. My green bean casserole has cheese it in too, cheddar, and bacon. I don’t think I’ve ever met a green bean casserole that I didn’t like.

    1. MmmWAH! love you! Bacon in this casserole…why have I never thought of that! By Job I think you’re on to something ; D

  5. Trust me people, you will not regret this! I do have to give a quick shout out to Aunt Marla who at some point in my life tipped me off on the addition of the CHEESE OF ALL CHEESES…..Velveeta. This delectable dish is so flipping good it can only rear it’s beautiful self once a year.
