The Best Green Bean Casserole We’ve Ever Had—No, Really

Updated April 10, 2017
With all due respect to the old-school classic, our new Ham and Cheese Green Bean Casserole, tested to perfection in the Betty Crocker Kitchens, is ready to take the crown as the best holiday side dish you’ll ever make. MORE+ LESS-

Green bean casserole is a non-negotiable side dish for gatherings throughout the year, and while the classic always satisfies, we have a reinvented riff for you to try—and we think this one’s a gamechanger. Our Ham and Cheese Green Bean Casserole recipe starts with fresh green beans and gets two indulgent additions that made it our new favorite: chopped ham and a smooth cheese sauce made with Cheddar, cream cheese and Progresso chicken broth. It’s a scratch recipe that you’ll be proud to set out on the table for a crowd—just don’t be surprised if it becomes the most-requested dish for all of your family gatherings (and maybe even for weeknight occasions, too!).

When you’re celebrating, you want to give your guests the best. Fill your next feast with our kitchen-tested side dish recipes!
