Instant Pot Green Bean Casserole

The Green Bean Casserole is such a nostalgic dish that made its first appearance on dinner tables in the 1950’s. It was first created in 1955 by the Campbell Soup Company. … The inspiration for the dish was “to create a quick and easy recipe around two things most Americans always had on hand in the 1950s: green beans and Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup.”

This Instant Pot Green Bean Casserole would go delicious with our Instant Pot Ham Dinner.

Why Use Instant Pot For Green Bean Casserole 

Why not? 

  • You can use less energy than cooking in the oven 
  • Doesn’t heat home
  • Free’s up oven space for other dishes
  • Quick
  • Easy 
  • Tasty

What Can I Use Instead of French’s Fried Onions 

If you don’t want or like the fried onions you can saute fresh onions and put on top, or toast some bread crumbs with parmesan and sprinkle on top. 

Does This Recipe Use Canned Soup 

Yes, you will use canned soup for that classic style green bean casserole. If you don’t like canned soup you can easily make a homemade canned soup to use. I have done that in the past to test and it tastes the same either way. You just get to control all the ingredients if you make your own canned soup. 

How To Prep Fresh Green Beans 

You will want to wash your green beans in cold water rinsing away any debris or dirt on your beans. Then you can dry them off a bit and then cut off the ends and then chop green beans in half. This will be a great size for your casserole. Try to aim to cut green beans similar in size so they all cook uniformly in the casserole. 

How Do You Toast The Onions On Top of Instant Pot Green Bean Casserole 

You will transfer your cooked casserole from Instant Pot to the casserole dish. Top with fried onions and then toss in oven to broil to toast them up. You want to cook them just long enough to get them a little crispy. Then serve up warm! 

How to Store Leftover Green Bean Casserole 

Pour any of your leftovers in an airtight container and store in the fridge 3-4 days. When stored at the right temperature you can enjoy leftovers for awhile.

You can eat the casserole cold or warm it up in the microwave or oven. If you opt to warm up in the oven then make sure to cover the pan to prevent the casserole from drying out as it heats up. 

Can You Freeze Green Bean Casserole

Because of the creamy base, this green bean casserole won’t freeze well. So make what you feel you can eat and then toss what you can’t eat. I wish it would freeze because this is one of our favorite dishes to make.
