Not Your Mom’s Casserole – Green Bean Casserole with a Twist

This post about a twist on green bean casserole is sponsored; however, all opinions are 100% my own and are not influenced in any way. #ThisIsMyTwist

My family has been making green bean casserole for the holidays since I can remember. My mom makes the same recipe, year after year. Don’t get me wrong, mom’s green bean casserole is delicious… but this year I wanted to add a twist and make it a bit different. I’ve been playing around in the kitchen to come up with a recipe I know my family will love! I can’t wait until Thanksgiving to share it with them and get their feedback! Until then, you get a sneak peek! Green bean casserole with a twist – add a twist to your holiday this year!

Twist the green bean casserole Personally, I am a huge fan of mushrooms and onions. Actually most people in my family are so I knew this was where I needed to start when it came to putting a twist on our casserole. I added some fresh mushrooms and onions, sour cream and cheese and what I got in return was love! 😉



Green Bean Casserole with a Twist

I, of course, used the three most common ingredients in the traditional green bean casserole and then added a bit of my own twist! These were the ingredients I used for my twisted green bean casserole:

  • 2 cans Del Monte® French Style Green Beans – drained
  • 1 cup button mushrooms sliced
  • 1/2 medium vidalia onion
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 can Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup French’s® Crispy Fried Onions
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • salt and pepper to taste

(I would suggest doubling this recipe for a holiday meal. This was made for my family of five, three of those five being small children.)

Sliced mushroomsFirst, I sliced the mushrooms and diced the onions.

Sauteed mushrooms and onionsNext, sauté the mushrooms and onions in butter until the mushrooms are soft and the onions are translucent.

Green BeansThe Del Monte® French Style Green Beans are what I chose for this recipe and I think this was the best option.

Cream of mushroom soupIn a large mixing bowl combine the drained green beans, mushroom and onion mixture, sour cream, Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup, Worcestershire sauce, 1 cup of cheddar cheese and salt and pepper. Stir ingredients until evenly combined.

This year in our family we are celebrating a few new babies and we have one family member who has gone off to serve in the military. Those of us who can make it to Thanksgiving will be gathering and enjoying our time together and those who can’t join us will be nearby in our hearts and thoughts.

Twist to green bean casserole #thisismytwistBecause of the various family changes occurring this year I thought it would be the perfect time for a switch in our traditional recipes. My mom, sisters and I always get together and have a baking party the night before our holiday gathering. We’ve done it for years and this year I can’t wait to share my new creation with them.
