ingredients

  • 7 (14 1/2 ounce) cans French style green beans (Drained and squeezed to get rid of all liquid)
  • 2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans cream of celery soup
  • 1 (8 ounce) container green onion dip
  • 1 (2 7/8 ounce) can French's French fried onions
  • 2 lbs Velveeta cheese, cubed
  • 1 (6 ounce) can French's French fried onions
  • pepper (You decide the amount you like)

directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Drain green beans then using clean paper towel and squeeze green beans until they stop giving up water. This will pulverize them, but that's OK. Place in large mixing bowl.
  • Add both cans of Cream of Celery soup. The old recipe has always called for Cream of Mushroom, but the Cream of Celery actually provides a better taste. Trust me!
  • Now add the entire container of Green Onion Dip and the 2.8 ounce can of the French's French Fried Onions.
  • Mix all ingredients. The soups, Dip, and Velveeta have enough salt so no need to season. Most of the time I add lots black pepper because it's what my family likes, but this is truly optional.
  • Spread mixture in 9"X13" pan (foil, metal, or glass -- It's your choice).
  • Here's the fun part. Take the cubed Velveeta and start sinking it into the mixture. This is a lot of cheese so feel free to reduce the amount if you wish, but the cheesiness is what makes it stand out as a different type of Green Bean Casserole. You will basically have cheese sunk into the mixture all the way across and down the pan. When you are finished take a spatula and smooth the mixture over the top of all of the cheese cubes.
  • Cook uncovered in 375 degree oven for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and spread the entire 6 ounce can of French's French Fried Onions over the top of the mixture. Return to oven and cook for 5 additional minutes.
  • When you serve this version -- People who love things like Hash Brown Casserole and Mac and Cheese will ask you to make it for every Thanksgiving, Potluck, or occasion.
