Expert Tips

  • Be careful not to overcook the green beans when boiling them in the first step, as they will still continue to cook in the oven. They should be just tender and a little crisp after draining them.
  • Since fried onions can burn easily, we always sprinkle them over the top of the casserole in the last few minutes of baking.
