Cheesy Green Bean Casserole Tips

What do I do if my green bean casserole is too watery?

This green bean casserole recipe shouldn't turn out too watery. However, as a safeguard to prevent a watery casserole, make sure to drain your thawed green beans and pat them dry with a paper towel.

Does green bean casserole freeze well?

Unfortunately, leftover green bean casserole does not freeze well. Cooked green beans don’t hold up to freezing, and the topping will lose its crunch. Find out how to freeze all your Thanksgiving leftovers.

Can you substitute cream of chicken for cream of celery?

Yes, you can substitute cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup for cream of celery. If you want to make things extra cheesy, cream of cheddar would work well, too.
