Ingredients for Green Bean Artichoke Casserole Recipe
Green beans are the main star of this recipe. They add a perfect pop of color to the table and take on the fantastic flavors of this casserole. I used fresh green beans, but you can also use frozen or canned beans. Just make sure the frozen beans are thawed and drained, and drain the canned beans.

The yellow onion adds a pleasant, savory flavor and aroma to the dish. I used one small yellow onion in this recipe, but you can always add more or less, depending on your preference. I also like to slice mine to have a similar shape to the beans, but you can dice or mince your onion.
White mushrooms are a great addition to the casserole, adding an earthy flavor and texture. I used fresh mushrooms in this recipe, but you can also use canned ones or skip them together. Make sure to drain them well before adding them to the mix if you do use canned.
Cream of Mushroom Soup
The cream of mushroom soup helps bind all the ingredients together and adds an extra savory flavor. I used a can of traditional cream of mushroom soup from Cambell’s, but you can also use condensed or low-fat varieties for this recipe.

The milk helps thin out the mixture and make it creamy. Any type will work – skim, 2%, whole, etc.
This seasoning mix adds a touch of herbaceous flavor and bright notes to the casserole. I like to use Hidden Valley brand, but any type will work. I only use a tiny bit (about 2 tsp); however, my mom likes to use more (about half the packet).
Salt and Pepper
Adding salt and pepper is a must! A little bit goes a long way in terms of flavor. Ensure not to over-season your casserole, as the soup and ranch mix will add a bit of saltiness.
This ingredient is probably my favorite part of the traditional green bean casserole recipe – fried crunchy onions! I use store-bought fried onions in this recipe for convenience, but you can make your own if you prefer. Sprinkle them over the top before baking, and enjoy that delicious crunch!
Trim your green beans if you bought them fresh, then boil them in a pot with 4-5 cups of water for about 5 minutes. You want them to have a little crunch when you take them out. Drain the bean and put it to the side.
Meanwhile, dice or slice the yellow onion, then add it to a large skillet with a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Saute for about 5 minutes until softened. Add in the mushrooms and continue cooking for another 3-4 minutes until all pieces are lightly browned.
Next, add the green beans, cooked onions and mushrooms, cream of mushroom soup, milk, ranch mix, salt, pepper, and 1 cup of the crunchy onions to a deep 9×13 baking dish. Gently mix them together.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, add the rest of the onions on top, and bake for another 5 minutes. Let cool down and enjoy!
Customizations for Green Bean Artichoke Casserole Recipe
- If you’re in a pinch and don’t have time, you can use canned ingredients all the way. Swap to canned green beans and canned mushrooms. Then just mix it all together, top it with crunchy onions, and bake!
Add More Color to your Green Bean Artichoke Casserole Recipe
- The beauty of this recipe is that it can be customized in any way you want.
- Feel free to add more veggies (I’ve added cherry tomatoes in the past)
- Swap out the yellow onion for red or green.
- You can add corn, peas, bell peppers, and carrots if you want!
Make Your Green Bean Artichoke Casserole Recipe Even Creamier
- If you like your casserole extra creamy, feel free to use more milk or cream instead of water when boiling the beans.
- Or you can add a tablespoon of butter to the skillet when sautéeing the onions and mushrooms.
Make Your Green Bean Artichoke Casserole Recipe Cheesy
- Adding some cheese to your casserole is always a good idea! Feel free to sprinkle any kind of cheese on top before baking. The cheese will increase the protein content of the dish.
- Some examples include shredded Parmesan, sharp cheddar, mozzarella, Monterey jack, or gruyere. This will add even more flavor and creaminess!
