The best 1950s green bean casserole

Green bean casserole — the kind with mouthwatering cream of mushroom, green beans, and fried onions — had its heyday in the ’50s, but for many of us, this incredibly low-maintenance dish, with its sinfully creamy, savoury goodness is still a delight to have today! This version adds cheddar cheese to the crunchy fried onion topping but it will surely take anyone back to their high school days by the jukebox!


  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C
  2. Place green beans and soup in a large microwave-safe bowl. Mix well and heat in the microwave on HIGH until warm (3 to 5 minutes). Stir in 1/2 cup of cheese and heat the mixture for another 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer green bean mixture to a casserole dish and sprinkle with French fried onions and remaining cheese.

  3. Bake in a preheated 175 degrees C oven until the cheese melts and the onions just begin to brown.
