Cheesy Green Bean Casserole

My Mother in law is famous for this cheesy baked green bean casserole! Unlike the traditional version, this one is slow roasted which creates a creamy, melt-in-your mouth texture that is unlike any green bean casserole I’ve ever had. The crispy cheesy crust provides the perfect textural contrast which makes the whole dish irresistible!

  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can cream of cream of celery soup
  • 1 6 oz container French’s crispy fried onions, divided

  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • In a large bowl, gently mix together drained green beans, mushroom soup, celery soup, half of the french’s crispy fried onions, half of the cheddar, and salt.
  • Place in a greased baking dish and top with the remaining cheddar cheese then the crispy fried onions. Bake for one hour, turning halfway, to create a perfectly even golden crust on all sides.
  • Let cool for 20 minutes before eating.
