Green Bean Casserole from Scratch


Ditch the canned mushroom soup and make Green Bean Casserole from scratch! This article with a demonstration video and easy printable recipe shows you how!


Ditch the canned mushroom soup. Seriously. Once you learn how easy it is to make Green Bean Casserole from scratch, you’ll never go back to the canned soup recipe.

Needing to make a quick Green Bean Casserole, I go to my cabinet and find it bereft of canned mushroom soup.

Now what? Well, canned mushroom soup is basically just a cream sauce with mushrooms in it. That’s easy to make from scratch. Butter, flour, milk, and at that time, canned sliced mushrooms.

Even with the canned sliced mushrooms, this Green Bean Casserole was much better than any I’d had before. It received a lot of compliments.

Now I make it from scratch every time. It’s worth it. And I’ve added some extra good things to make it extra good. 🙂
