My family looks forward to this fabulous side dish every year! Tender green beans cooked in a creamy mushroom sauce and topped with crispy fried onions and cheddar cheese; so many family favorites ingredients all put together in one dish!

I do love a classic green bean casserole (with canned beans) but growing up my mom always made green bean casserole with fresh beans so that’s the way I make it too.

The beans are cooked just until tender crisp and the traditional mushroom soup is then added (you can also make Homemade Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup if you don’t want to use canned).

Next I sprinkle in some diced red bell peppers which is not only super flavorful, but makes this dish beautifully colorful and festive!

In my house we always make Green Bean Casserole with cheese and the final ingredient is the addition of a hint of smoked paprika! It adds a very subtle smoky flavor that pairs so well with the cheddar cheese!
