This is my own version of Green Bean Casserole, It uses a different ingredient, but I think it's the best. I hope You will like it too :) This recipe is what I make for holidays, but you can certainly scale it down to suit the amount you want to make. It does make less than it seems though, especially if you use the French style green beans (not to mention how good left overs are). Exact measurements aren't really neccesary though so don't be afraid to make less or more. For one can beans I'd use 2oz cream cheese and 1/3 can of cream of chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat over to 350°F and grease a 9x9 or whatever sized dish you want to use. I don't suggest a 9X13 but anything smaller will do.
  2. Drain green beans VERY well, and mix with softened cream cheese, the soup, a pinch of garlic powder and salt and pepper to your liking.
  3. Add 1/2 cup of the french friend onions.
  4. Pour into greased pan and cover loosely with foil. Bake for about 25 minutes Then remove cover and stir.
  5. Add remaining french fried onions to the top and bake uncovered for another 20 to 30 minutes Until it's bubbly and looks done.
  6. Cool for at least 5 minutes and enjoy! :).

I had some canned green beans and a can of cream of chicken soup that I wanted to use, so I Googled for a recipe. I am so glad I found this one! I never made a green bean casserole before, but I made this one for our Christmas dinner. It did not last long. Everyone LOVED it! I made my french fried onions from scratch (sliced 1 raw into onion rings, soaked in milk about 5 or 10 minutes, dredged in flour then fried in hot oil til golden brown), then I just followed your recipe. I used garlic salt, a few shakes of seasoned salt and a bit of fresh ground black pepper for seasoning. I did not have the french cut green beans, just the regular cut, and they do just fine. It was delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe and making my first green bean casserole a big HIT!.
