A Southern Green Bean Casserole Recipe for Your Holiday Table


Is there a more iconic side dish for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Easter than a green bean casserole? We’ll wait… Yeah, we didn’t think so either!

Well, Paula’s Southern Green Bean Casserole Recipe is the best around, so we thought we’d share her delicious recipe with you all so you can spread some delicious joy on your holiday table!

Ready to get started? You’ll need the following ingredients:

  • ⅓ stick butter
  • ½ cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • ½ cup diced onions
  • 2 cups sliced green beans
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (10¾-oz) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (2.8-oz) can French-fried onion rings
  • 1 pinch Paula Deen’s House Seasoning
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Now that you have your ingredients gathered, it’s time to get cooking, y’all!

To get started, you’ll need to preheat the oven to 350 °F, then melt the ⅓ stick of butter in a large skillet. Next, sauté the onions and mushrooms in the butter. Meanwhile, boil the green beans in the chicken broth for 10 minutes, and then drain them.

Next up, add the green beans, mushroom soup, and onion rings, to the onions, mushrooms, and butter. Then season the mixture with Paula’s House Seasoning to taste, making sure to stir well.

Pour the mixture into a greased 1½-quart baking dish, then toss it in the oven for 20 minutes. Lastly, top the casserole with the Cheddar cheese, and bake it for about 10 more minutes, until the casserole is hot and cheese is melted.

This classic Southern green bean casserole recipe is the perfect addition to any holiday table. It’s consistently one of Paula’s most popular recipes each year, and for good reason—it’s one of those universally beloved dishes that pairs well with just about any holiday entrée, including turkey, ham, and beef.
