    Very Good... Sugestion use salt free canned green beans and rinse them in water after opening. Also, the Healthy Choice Campbells soup actually has less fat and calories than the fat free version. Otherwise yummm - 5/22/09

    Although the frozen green beans are healthier they were so much tougher to eat. I would probably go back to the canned for this kind of recipe. - 2/2/09

    I use fresh green beans, steamed in mine, and the healthy request campbells soup in mine. We've used skim milk for years now. - 12/25/08

    I am one who does not do mushrooms, so I use cream of celery instead. Take it to Church pot-lucks and is the first one gone. Thanks for sharing the non-fat milk, will try this season :) - 10/30/09

    Frozen green beans? Canned soup? Canned fried onions? That isn't food worth eating. - 11/14/14

    This is so much better using canned green beans, frozen ones are a pain to cook and never turn out well.....Green beans are one vegetable that are not better frozen!...other wise , this is the way I`ve made this casserole for 10 years. - 12/18/13

    Delicious! I used 1.3 16oz bags of frozen french cut green beans, and mixed half the French's onions during cooking and the rest for the last 5 minutes. Next time I'll make it 1.5 bags and otherwise no changes. And I'm not waiting until next Thanksgiving to do this again! - 11/27/10

    I agree with fresh green beans, steamed, or sauteed, as adding better flavor. Everything else is great. Sounds like the sliced almonds someone mentioned would be a healthier option than the french fried onions but then we can always do our own onions, right? Thanks. - 11/16/20

    I have made mine exactly this way for years. I cook the frozen beans a little first to soften them up. Be safe this Holiday season! - 11/14/20

    *I have been making a "version" of this recipe since the 1950s. *I have tried both canned and fresh green beans. *I prefer the canned. *I do NOT like cream of mushroom soup in anything! *I use either "golden mushroom" or "beefy mushroom". *To me either one gives a better "taste" than "cream" style. - 11/15/16

    This is an easy delicious recipe, however, I prefer to use canned green beans (drained)
    Also, I add more crispy onions to the casserole, as well as on top -- YUM.

    My heart dropped when I read canned soup, then even more when I read canned onion.
    That canned soup is very retro for current recipes. I did by a tin recently. But the dish still tasted if margarine, or cheap butter. My opinion.
    Canned onion? Cook fresh onion while the beans are pre-cooking!

    This is the recipe I will use for Thanksgiving to save my family a few calories. It' quick and easy, but I'm going to use a minimal amount of the fried onions and will see if there is a low sodium mushroom soup I can buy. - 11/14/14

    My son loves green bean casserole, but since my husband and I are now GF, I have to make a modified version from scratch. More work, but still delicious. Like the idea of topping with almonds instead of french fried onions. Then use almond milk in the mushroom gravy because of DH's lactose issues. - 11/25/13

    I have not made this EXACT recipe...but close enough. Rather than frozen/canned beans, I use fresh green beans and steam them just enough to leave a slight crispness. Mix with Campbell's Golden Mushroom soup (I've heard it's healthier). Top w/ onions and it's delish! I love the slight bean crunch! - 11/25/13
