Bakin’ With Bacon and the King for Thanksgiving!


Howdy Fellow Chefs!   I have a yummy side dish for you!

I’ve got another good one for you today. My Mom is a nutcase when it comes to insisting we have Green Bean Casserole for Thanksgiving – and just about any other time she can make it as well. So how about a recipe for the casserole WITH BACON????

Not a recipe you’ve never heard of I’m sure but maybe one you sort of forgot about – I don’t think most people put cheddar cheese OR bacon it it but it sure adds a lot!

Bacon Cheddar Green Bean Casserole


  • 2 cans (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and chopped (about 6 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 8 cups cooked green beans or 4 cans (14.5 ounces each) any style Del Monte® Green Beans, drained
  • 2 2/3 cups French’s® French Fried Onions


  • Step 1

    Stir the soup, milk, half the cheese, 5 tablespoons bacon, black pepper, beans and 1 1/3 cups onions in a 3-quart baking dish.

  • Step 2

    Bake at 350°F. for 25 minutes or until the bean mixture is hot and bubbling and the beans are tender (for softer beans bake a little longer).  Stir the bean mixture.  Sprinkle with the remaining cheese, onions and bacon.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 5 minutes or until the onions are golden brown.


Oh boy – I want a big old bowl of this now.    Well, Mom wouldn’t give me a big bowl of it ANY TIME but maybe for Turkey Day this year since they will be home making their own meal for a change they could let me have a LITTLE TASTE????????????????????

Since we won’t see you before Thanksgiving has come and gone – we hope all of you who celebrate Thanksgiving have a wonderful time – even if it’s just your family at home instead of with big groups – you can be THANKFUL that you’re healthy and have delicious food to eat………………so many don’t.   

Hugs, King Teddy !!
