  • 3 c French style canned green beans
  • 1 or 2 10 oz can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 c diced onion
  • 1/2 to 1 c milk or cream
  • 1 c mushrooms (optional)
  • 1 1/3 c French fried onions
  • 1/2 c bacon
  • 1 1/2 c cheddar cheese (optional)
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 lb ground sausage cooked (optional)


  1. Chop up 1/2 cup of bacon and sauté in a Dutch oven or cast iron skillet until just done.

  2. Add onions and cook for 2 minutes.

  3. Add mushrooms and green beans and cook until green beans are nearly done.

  4. Add the mushroom soup and milk and stir in for 2 to 3 minutes.

  5. When the green beans are fully cooked, add 1 cup of the French fried onions and 1 cup of cheese and stir in the mixture.

  6. Stir in all seasoning.

  7. Top with remaining French fried onions and cheese.

  8. Place lid on Dutch oven and place about 15 coals on the top for about 10 minutes or until the French fried onions are just turning brown. If you are using a skillet you can toss a lid on it and place coals on top for about 5 minutes or until brown. If you have an oven you can just place it in an oven for 20 minutes at 375 or until top is golden brown.
