Ruth’s Mother’s Recipes: Green Bean Casserole

April 2009
Mom loved this dish. So did every other mother in the ’50s. There was hardly a household in America that did not have a can of fried onions in the cupboard. I don’t even know if they still make them.
  • 2 10-ounce packages frozen French-style green beans
  • 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 3 1/2-ounce can French-fried onions
  • Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Cook beans according to package directions.
  • Blend mushroom soup with milk.
  • Drain cooked beans and add to soup mixture.
  • Reserve 1/3 cup onions for topping; add the rest to the green bean mixture.
  • Pour into buttered 1-quart casserole. Sprinkle reserved onions on top. Bake 25 minutes.
