Green Bean Casserole Tips

  1. This casserole can easily be made with and without mushrooms. You could also use canned. You can use whole, cut frozen green beans as well.
  2. You could also technically just add the onions on the cast iron pan and toss it in to the oven. But I don’t think serving the skillet is that amazing, especially since you typically make this for holiday meals.

Preheat oven to 400 and grease a casserole dish. Set aside.

It’s totally easy to make green bean casserole with cream of onion or cream of mushroom soup but its also totally unnecessary!

No need to run to the store to see what you have on hand when you can combine delicious fresh (or frozen) green beans in your own marinade of sauce this season.
