Jazzy Green Bean Casserole

     I don't usually cook with canned vegetables but every once in a while I crave one of those old fashioned, comforting bean casseroles where the vegetables play second fiddle to the other creamy, and usually fattening, ingredients.  This Jazzy Green Bean Casserole from Allrecipes is cheesy, rich and easy as pie to make in your dutch oven.  Mix everything together except the onions, bake until bubbling, then top with the crispy onions.  The casserole baked in my 10 inch oven with 10 coals in a ring around the bottom and 20 on the lid.  The corn and Cheddar give it a different twist from your classic green bean casserole, it's an easy outdoor recipe and a pot luck winner that everyone will love.

Jazzy Green Bean Casserole
2 14.5 oz cans green beans, drained
1 15 oz can corn, drained
1 10.75 oz can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/4 cup dried onion flakes
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
1 3 oz can French-fried onions

     Lightly oil or spray 10 inch dutch oven.
     In a large bowl combine green beans, corn, mushroom soup, onion flakes, cheese, salt, pepper and garlic powder.
     Spoon bean mixture into prepared dutch oven.
     Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
     Sprinkle fried onions on top and bake for a few minutes more or until onions brown.
     Makes 8 servings.

Mix all ingredients together, except onions, and spoon
into prepared dutch oven

Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees then sprinkle with onions

Bake for 5 minutes more or until topping has browned

Crispy, crunchy, creamy and very comforting


  1. I love the smell of green bean casserole going thru the house. I make it quite a few times every year, especially around the holidays, with rave reviews. Goofy as this sounds, I can't stand green beans, refuse to eat them, not sure why. Everyone in my family loves them, just not me. But I have always had great success with my recipe, so I am volunteered every time. Always wanted to try it in the D.O. (It's the only recipe I have cooked, but never actually eaten. LOL) Thanks Liddy.

  2. You're a good egg Scott to keep making your casserole, must be a really good recipe, thanks for your comments, Liddy

  3. Can you cook all of your recipes the same in the kitchen oven using an enameled dutch oven. I'm brand new into cast iron and loving it!
    Thank you!

  4. Misty, most of the recipes I post have been converted for camp oven cooking however I provide a link to the original recipe whenever I can so you can make it in your conventional oven. Good luck and thanks for stopping by! Liddy
