Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 12 oz fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 can (10.5 oz) condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup French's® crispy fried onions
  • 1 pouch (4.7 oz each) Betty Crocker™ creamy butter mashed potatoes
  • Water, milk and butter called for on potatoes pouch
  • 2 oz (from 8-oz package) cream cheese, softened

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 8-inch square (2-quart) baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In 4-quart saucepan, heat 2 quarts water and 1 teaspoon salt to boiling. Add green beans; cook 4 to 6 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain, and return to saucepan.
  • 3
    Add soup, milk, pepper and 1/2 cup of the fried onions to saucepan; stir. Pour into baking dish.
  • 4
    Make mashed potatoes as directed on pouch. Stir cream cheese into mashed potatoes. Spread potatoes evenly over green bean mixture in baking dish.
  • 5
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until hot and bubbling around edges. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup fried onions.
  • 6
    Bake 5 to 10 minutes or until onions are golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    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.
  • tip 2
    Since fried onions can burn easily, we always sprinkle them over the top of the casserole in the last few minutes of baking.
