The BEST Green Bean Casserole with Cheese and Bacon
The BEST Green Bean Casserole with Bacon and Cheese: One of the most popular green bean recipes, and such an easy side dish that SHOULDN'T just be for Thanksgiving!
cans of french style green beans
can of cream of mushroom soup
I used 2% but any will do!
or to taste
french fried onions
divided - half will go in, half will sprinkle on top
shredded cheddar cheese
to taste (remember, bacon has salt!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Start by pouring your drained, canned green beans into a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine the soup, milk, and pepper.
Pour on top of the green beans and stir until completely coated.
Add in the cooked chopped bacon and stir until mixed in.
Next, add in half of the french fried onions and mix in too!
Once mixed together, pour into a greased baking dish. (I used a baking dish that was about an 8x8, but you can use a smaller/bigger dish if desired.)
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Remove and sprinkle on remaining french fried onions and cheese, until you've evenly covered the top.
Add back into the 350 oven and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and a nice golden color!
