Most Green Bean Casseroles have canned soup in them. I have nothing against canned soups and use them all the time in my recipes. However, this particular recipe is from scratch – no canned soup. Don’t worry, it’s still easy to make. I don’t like complicated recipes.

How to Make Green Bean Casserole

The first step is to make the deliciously creamy mushroom sauce. In a medium saucepan, whisk together heavy cream, flour, butter, garlic, salt and pepper over medium-low heat. Keep whisking until it thickens up. Add in the mushrooms and simmer on for another 15 minutes.
