Ingredients

  • 4-5 cups fresh green beans stems removed
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 2-3 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, part skim cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, part skim shredded
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 1/2 cup french fried onions
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cooking spray
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1-2 tsp water
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • I didn't add any water or broth to the Instant Pot for the green beans. The soup was enough for me. If you wish you can add a cup of water or broth and drain it before baking.

Instructions

  • Place the Instant Pot on the Sauté function. Add the olive oil and garlic.
  • Cook until the garlic becomes fragrant.
  • Add the cream of mushroom soup and green beans to the pot. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Close the pot and seal. Cook in Manual High-Pressure Cooking for 15 minutes.
  • When the Instant Pot indicates it has finished, quick release the steam. Turn the Instant Pot to the sauté function.
  • Combine the flour and water in a small bowl to create a slurry. Add the slurry to the pot.
  • Add half of the shredded cheese and stir.
  • Cook for a couple of minutes until the cheese has melted.
  • Place the mozzarella cubes throughout the casserole.  Top with the remaining shredded cheese, panko breadcrumbs, and fried onions. Serve.

Optional Steps (for crunchy topping)

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Remove the green bean casserole from the pot after adding the flour water slurry and half of the shredded cheese.
  • Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Transfer the casserole to a baking dish. Place the mozzarella cubes throughout the casserole. Top with the remaining cheese, breadcrumbs and fried onions.
  • Bake for 5-7 minutes until the cheese has melted and crisped slightly on top.
  • Cool before serving.

Stovetop Instructions

  • Add the garlic to a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook until fragrant.
  • Add the soup, green beans, and salt and pepper. Cook until the green beans are soft for 4-5 minutes. Add half of the cheese and stir.
  • Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish. Place the mozzarella cubes throughout the casserole. Top with the remaining cheese, and breadcrumbs.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Remove the dish. Top with the french fried onions. Bake for an additional 5 minutes.

Notes

I purchase blocks of cheese and do the grating and shredding on my own. The cheese melts a lot better this way, vs purchasing pre-shredded cheese.
