The Best Green Bean Casserole – Life In The Lofthouse


This version of green bean casserole is the best! Homemade sauce, fresh green beans and lots of fried onions!

Yes, I admit it. I am a green bean casserole lover to the core! I not only make this classic dish at holiday dinners, but I make it year round with some of our favorite chicken dishes. I highly adapted this recipe from an old Food Network one. It’s the only recipe I use because of the ingredients. Fresh, simple, yet amazing. 

The creamy homemade sauce is why I call this one, “The Best!” No canned stuff in this recipe. The sauce is super easy to prepare and comes together quickly. Fresh green beans are also another must of mine. You can definitely use canned or frozen but I personally love the flavor of the fresh. 

Last, but certainly not least, is the French’s fried onions. I load them up in this casserole! I love the crunch and saltiness they bring. They make it totally worth every single calorie. ha! :mrgreen:


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
