  • 4 cups green beans drained and cut into bite-sized pieces (You can use thawed frozen beans, canned beans, or steamed fresh beans. Two 14-oz commercial cans will work if you want to go that route.)
  • 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup (I buy low sodium fat free soup, but you buy whatever you want.), 10.75-oz
  • 2-3 cups shredded cheddar cheese divided
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed or minced
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 10 ounces cheddar-flavor French Fried onions


  • In a large bowl, combine green beans, soup, 1 cup of cheese, garlic, and onion powder. Mix well. I usually do this the night before so that I don't have to bother on the morning of Thanksgiving.
  • Transfer green bean mixture to a casserole dish. Top with remaining shredded cheese.
  • Bake at 350, until bubbly and heated through, about 30 minutes. Add the French Fried onions and bake until onions are browned, usually 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Serve hot.
