TIPS FOR MAKING THIS CLASSIC BEAN CASSEROLE

  • To make a thicker casserole, try using an 8×8 or 8×10-inch pan.
  • If you plan to feed a crowd, just double the recipe and use a 13×9-inch baking dish. You will need to increase the baking time when doubling the amounts to ensure the casserole is hot when serving.
  • I used Cream of Chicken for this recipe, but I also used Cream of Mushroom and I love that variation too!

CAN I USE FRESH BEANS INSTEAD OF CANNED BEANS?

  • You can make green bean casserole with canned green beans, fresh green beans, or frozen green beans. The choice is yours, although I prefer the canned beans as there is something delicious about the canned beans in this dish, maybe it’s the smooth texture and flavor of the added salt in the canned beans that has me hooked!
  • If you end up using frozen or fresh beans, you should boil them until crisp-tender and then be sure to drain them well before continuing with the steps above.

CAN I MAKE THIS BEAN CASSEROLE AHEAD?

  • You definitely can! I love making meals ahead of time, especially when it comes to busy seasons like the holidays.
    Just mix all the ingredients together and pour into your baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil until ready to bake. Just remember that since the ingredients are cold, you may need to bake the casserole a bit longer to heat it through.

CAN I STORE THE LEFTOVERS OF THE GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE?

  • I’d love to say that you can freeze this dish, but unfortunately, my experience is that cooked beans don’t hold up to freezing. The topping loses its crunchy crunch, so it’s best to eat leftover casserole within a few days of making it.
  • The casserole can be stored in your refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
