Prep Time: 10 Min
– 2 cans (14.5 ounces each) green beans, drained – 1 can (10.75 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup – 3/4 cup milk – 1 teaspoon soy sauce – 1 dash black pepper – 1 1/3 cups crispy fried onions
Cookingtime: 30 MIN
Preheat the Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). This ensures that the oven reaches the ideal temperature for baking the casserole.
Mix Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the drained green beans, condensed cream of mushroom soup, milk, soy sauce, and a dash of black pepper. This mixture forms the base of your casserole.
Add Half of the Fried Onions: Stir in half a cup of the crispy fried onions into the green bean mixture. These onions will add a delightful crunch and flavor to the casserole.
Transfer to Casserole Dish: Pour the green bean mixture into a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish. Spread it evenly to ensure consistent cooking.
First Bake: Place the casserole dish in the preheated oven and bake for 25 minutes. During this time, the casserole will become hot, and the flavors will begin to meld together.
Add Remaining Onions: After 25 minutes, remove the casserole from the oven and stir it gently. Then, sprinkle the remaining crispy fried onions on top of the casserole. These onions will become golden and crispy, adding a wonderful texture to the dish.
Final Bake: Return the casserole to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes. This final bake is crucial as it allows the onions on top to turn golden brown and crispy.
