  1. It's those little French-fried onions dude. Why are they so gross out of the can but once they're on the greenbean pie, ZOMG! Can't get enough. And it's that smidgen of soy sauce that makes a world of difference! I like to use a little less milk so it comes out creamier, but this is a holiday classic up there with stuffing, pumpkin pie, and the wiggly cranberry jelly that retains the can's shape.
  2. I always make Campbell's Green Bean Casserole every year for holiday dinner. I use Kentucky Wonder Italians with the standard-cut green beans. In addition, since my DH doesn't like Cream of Mushroom Soup, I'll use Cream of Celery or Cream of Chicken, which ever I may have in the pantry. We end up with left-overs of no more than two servings because it just gets DEVOURED! I've never done the soy sauce. Will need to give that a try this year. And I'm like Robyn ... I'll eat the fried onions, too, so I always make sure I purchase at least two large cans. I may get two of the original and one of the new cheese fried onions to mix with it the original :)
  3. This was very good and enjoyed on my Thanksgiving dinner by all. I agree not sure what the soy sauce did but this was very good, the only problem is I needed to go to the store on Thanksgiving because I ate the can of french fried onions the night before! I got this ready to bake that night.
  4. I have no idea what the soy sauce does to this casserole, but, somehow, the flavor is brighter, better. Normally, we'd be trying to finish the "other" casserole days later. This one--we had 3 spoonfuls left after our dinner. Thanks!
  5. Absolutely a must on our Thanksgiving table! The little bit of soy sauce makes a difference. Thaks for posting!!! Alan


  1. Try cream of chicken soup chopped water chestnuts and Velveeta cheese for a tasty switch
