The casserole consists of three main components - green beans, cream of mushroom soup & French fried onions.

It was created at a time where processed foods were heavily utilized hence the reason why Campbell"s cream of mushroom soup was a key feature.

Although many people still adhere to this method, there is a more modified version where sliced mushrooms are pan seared (brown) và a creamy bechamel sauce is used in place of cream of mushroom soup.

Some people add cheese be it cream cheese or shredded cheese khổng lồ yield more creaminess và then the infamous French fried onions are added as a topping.
