The cheese was left out of the ingredient list! I don't know what kind or how much!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (10 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt or 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 12 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans cut green beans, drained
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 (6 ounce) can French-fried onions (French's)


  1. Mix the Soup, Milk, Sour Cream, Garlic & pepper. Fold in the Green Beans.
  2. Mix the Bread Crumbs & melted Butter together in a seprate bowl.
  3. Using 1/3 of the Green Bean mix, spread into a thin layer, add 1/3 of the Bread Crumbs & sprinkle with 1/3 of the cheese. Continue to layer with the Bread Crumbs & cheese on top.
  4. Bake loosely covered for 15 to 20 minutes on 350, then uncover & add the french-fried onions & bake approximately another 5 or 10 minutes. (caerfull to not burn onions).
  5. This can be made ahead & stored overnight in the fridge (without the fried onions but may have to cook another 5 minutes longer). Use an 9x9 pan unless you double the recipe then you can use a 9x13.
  6. My son now makes this for both Thanksgiving & Christmas dinners, he said he makes an average of 8 casseroles due to demands for holiday parties & family gatherings.
