Cast Iron Green Bean Casserole Recipe

Thanksgiving is almost here, and what for many people in the United States, it's a time to celebrate gratitude by sharing a feast with family and friends.  For me, it's all about sharing good food with good people while making good memories.  To add on to the sharing aspect of this holiday, here is my cast iron green bean casserole recipe:

You will need:
  • A cast iron skillet (I use a 12 inch), dutch oven, or any casserole dish
  • Three tablespoons butter
  • Three tablespoons olive oil
  • Two cups of fresh mushrooms  (sliced or chopped)
  • 1/4 of a white or sweet onion (sliced or chopped at the same consistency of the mushrooms)
  • Cleaned and trimmed fresh green beans (enough to fill up the baking container, approximately 7-8 cups)
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • One container of condensed mushroom soup
  • One container of fried onions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius).
  2. On the stove top, heat up the butter and olive oil in the cast iron skillet. (If you are using a casserole dish, use a large pan.)
  3. Add the mushrooms and saute them until they start to turn brown.
  4. Add the onions and saute until they start to turn golden brown.
  5. Add the green beans and saute until they start to soften and turn brown.
  6. Add the water and condensed mushroom soup.
  7. Stir thoroughly until the mixture until all the components are completely heated.
  8. Turn off heat. (If using a casserole dish, transfer the contents from the large pan to the casserole dish.)
  9. Sprinkle 2/3 of the fried onions on top of the casserole.
  10. Cook in the oven for about 20 minutes.
  11. Take the dish out of the oven and sprinkle the remaining fried onions on top for a crispy texture.
  12. Enjoy with friends and family!
