The Best Green Bean Casserole Recipes to Grace Your Thanksgiving Dinner Table (1)

You've made mashed potatoes, an assortment of pies, and the turkey is roasting in the oven. What's missing from your Thanksgiving menu? The green bean casserole, of course! There’s always the tried-and-true family recipe that your great-great-grandmother baked to perfection ages ago...or you can make your very own tradition this year with a brand new—and equally delicious, mind you—rendition that your whole family will still gobble up. These best green bean casserole recipes will cover all your holiday bases, from vegetarian options to easy slow cooker recipes.

Plus, there’s a whole other world of savory ingredients beyond the signature cream of mushroom soup. Incorporate everything from cream cheese to mashed cauliflower for deliciously unique spins on this Thanksgiving staple. You can also give the baking dish a rest (or save it for a Thanksgiving dessert) and whip up mini green bean bites, rather than the standard casserole route. Or, simply wrap bundles of creamy green beans in bacon for the ultimate crowd-pleasing addition to the Thanksgiving recipe spread. Test out one of these new ideas, or stick with the classics for a side dish everyone will gladly pile on their plates. For even more Thanksgiving menu ideas, check out the best Turkey Day cookies and pumpkin recipes.
