If you’ve been looking for a new holiday side dish recipe, I think you’ll want to add this one to the list. It’s always a hit when I make it!
There are three simple parts to this recipe: the sauce, the veggies, and the topping made with crackers.
The sauce is so creamy and cheesy with cream of celery soup, sour cream, finely chopped onion, and shredded cheddar cheese that melts into the sauce while it bakes.
To make things really easy with the main vegetables, I use canned French-style green beans and frozen corn. You don’t have to thaw the corn first – just add it to the sauce.
For the topping, all you need are crushed cheese crackers. You can use your favorite kind, but I usually use Cheez-Its. Crush them in a resealable bag with a rolling pin, or blitz them in a food processor.
2 Steps to Prepare this Quick and Easy Side Dish
Once you have your ingredients ready, it takes no time at all to assemble the casserole!
- Assemble: Combine the soup, sour cream, cheese, onion in a large mixing bowl. Add the green beans, corn, and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into a 2-quart baking dish coated with cooking spray.
- Bake: Cover the baking dish and bake the casserole for 25 minutes at 350 degrees F. Uncover it and sprinkle the crushed crackers around the edge of the casserole, leaving the middle exposed. Spritz the crackers with some butter spray. Bake it for 15 more minutes or until it’s hot and bubbly!
Assemble it Ahead for Holiday Dinners
This is a straightforward side dish, but to make life even easier for holiday dinners, you can assemble a day in advance and keep it in the refrigerator.
If you do, don’t add the crackers until you are ready to bake it. That way, they will be nice a crunchy! I usually crush them ahead of time and keep them in a resealable bag. That way, when it’s time to pop the casserole in the oven, I sprinkle them over the top and bake it.
If you bake the casserole straight from the fridge, you may need to add a few minutes to the baking time. It’s ready when it’s hot and bubbly!
Main Dish Ideas!
This green bean corn casserole with cheese goes with all the holiday main dishes, but it’s also a great side dish for weeknight dinners. You don’t need to wait for Thanksgiving or other holidays to make it!
- Serve it with roast turkey, honey baked ham, or slow cooker pineapple ham for a delicious holiday dinner.
- It’s also great with Parmesan pork chops, baked chicken legs, and griddle steaks for an amazing weeknight dinner!
