Chrissy Teigen Green Bean Casserole Recipe


  1. 4 cups chicken broth or water
    2½ cups fresh green beans, cut into 2-inch-long pieces
    2 (10 oz.) cans of low sodium cream of mushroom soup
    ¾ cup half-and-half
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    ½ teaspoon kosher salt
    ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    8 oz. uncured ham, cubed
    ½ cup onions, diced
    2½ cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
    1 cup canned French fried onions, divided


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bring the chicken broth to a boil in a small pot, add the green beans, and cook until tender-crisp, 5-6 minutes. Drain into a bowl, and save the chicken broth for another use.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the mushroom soup, half-and-half, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir in the cooked green beans, ham, onions, 2 cups of the cheddar, and and ¾ cup of the fried onions.
  3. Spray a 10-x-12-inch baking dish with cooking spray, and add the mixture to the casserole. Sprinkle with the remaining ½ cup cheddar, and bake until bubbly and crusty, 40 minutes, adding the remaining ¼ cup French fried onions during the last 10 minutes of baking. Remove from the oven, let sit for 5 minutes, and serve.
