Easy Green Bean Casserole with Cream Cheese

This creamy and easy green bean casserole with cream cheese is a delicious side dish for any occasion, especially Thanksgiving!


  • Bacon: 1/2 of one package
  • Sour Cream: 1 cup
  • Cream Cheese, softened: one 8 oz package
  • Garlic Powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Onion Powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Salt: 1 teaspoon
  • Pepper: 1/2 teaspoon
  • Frozen French Style Green Beans: 2 pounds/750 grams
  • Ritz Crackers, crushed: 1 and 1/2 cups
  • Butter, melted: 1/4 cup



The texture of the topping tastes a lot better when the bacon is crispy because it gives the creamy bean filling a nice crunch on top!

When making the green bean filling, use a large bowl as it’s tricky to mix the frozen beans with everything, and more room makes it easier and creates less mess!

Bake the casserole on the middle rack, and be sure to check on it a couple of times while it bakes to make sure the topping isn’t burning.
