Ingredients for Smoked Green Bean Casserole Recipe
- Canned cut green beans – To keep this recipe simple, canned green beans work great. I don’t recommend making this recipe with fresh green beans.
- Cream of mushroom soup – This adds flavor and also creates the creamy sauce that makes this casserole so good.
- Worcestershire sauce – A little bit goes a long way to add a nice savory flavor.
- Sea salt and Freshly ground black pepper
- Canned French fried onions – These are a green bean casserole must! They add that nice crunchy topping that everyone loves.
What wood pellets work best?
Apple wood pellets work great for this smoker recipe. You can also try hickory or pecan.
What temperature should you smoke Green Bean Casserole at?
For green bean casserole, I let to set the smoker to 225°F. Let it heat up while you prepare the casserole so it’s ready to go.
How to Make Smoked Green Bean Casserole
Mix the soup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Fold in the green beans.
Transfer the mixture to a 8×8″ aluminum pan or a cast iron skillet.
Smoke the casserole for 30 minutes and then sprinkle the French onions over the top. Smoke it for 15 minutes longer or until it’s heated through.
Make It Ahead!
There are always so many things to get ready for a holiday meal, so I always appreciate when I can prep things ahead. Great news! You can do that with this recipe.
You can assemble the casserole the night before (don’t add the onions on top), cover it, and keep it in the refrigerator.
When you’re ready to smoke it, let it sit out at room temperature while the smoker heats. Next, cook it following the instructions in the recipe card.
How to Store Leftover Green Bean Casserole
Green bean casserole is best served as soon as it’s made, but if you have leftovers they will keep for two to three days. Keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The French onion topping won’t be as crunchy, but the casserole will still taste great.
I hope you add a little smoke to your holiday meal this year! This smoked green bean casserole is a great one to try because it’s so easy. It also tastes amazing – everyone will want a second helping. Enjoy!
