I don’t know how you could possibly make an easier green bean casserole than this! And it is so delicious, you would never know it took about 15 minutes to put together. This is an awesome last-minute recipe, and unlike many traditional green bean casserole recipes, it does not require the use of a can of processed soup. It may not be exactly what you remember from your Thanksgiving table (this recipe does not include onions), it is so tasty, quick, and easy that you won’t mind (or at least, we don’t!) It is great for a last-minute dish, and because it uses frozen veggies, you can whip it up in a flash.
Plus, since it only requires 5 ingredients, it’s a cost effective dish that you and your family will love! This recipe feeds about 3-4 people, but you could easily double the recipe to feed more.
Easy 5 Ingredient Green Bean Casserole [ Recipe by Neshikot.com ]
16 oz frozen green beans (I use Whole Foods Organic chopped green beans)
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded Parmesan, plus 1/4 cup extra for the topping
1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1/4 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare frozen green beans according to directions on the package.
Butter a baking dish (a 13×9″ or 8×8″ will both work). In a large bowl, mix together green beans, softened cream cheese (if in a rush, you can pop cream cheese in the microwave for about 15 seconds), and 1 cup parmesan. Pour green bean mixture into baking dish.
In a bowl, mix together bread crumbs, melted butter, and 1/4 cup parmesan. Pour topping over green bean mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
This recipe makes about 3-4 servings. If you are serving more people, please double the recipe.
My toddler likes this dish a lot, but please remember to chop up the green beans into very small pieces if feeding this to a toddler.
