Green Bean-Mushroom Casserole (By Paula Deen)

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This is a highly rated recipe from Paula Deen of the Food Channel and worth making! I have tweaked it slightly and doubled the complete amounts to suit our tastes --- Paula has a house seasoning blend mix which is 1/2 cup salt mixed with 2 tablespoons black pepper and 2 tablespoons garlic powder, she uses a small amount in this casserole, you have the option of omitting the fresh garlic and adding it in, store the remaining mix in an air tight container for up to 6 months, I strongly recommend using low-sodium cream of mushroom soup

I made this for Thanksgiving and we all thought it was delicious.I loved the fresh mushrooms and green beans.So much better than using the canned ones.The only thing I changed was I only used one can of mushroom soup and one can of the onion rings.It was still just right for us.This is the best green bean casserole! Thanks for the recipe.
