Green Bean Casserole has always been a part of my holiday celebrations. From Thanksgiving to Christmas to regular weeknight meals in between, it’s a dish that I really make year round but make very often during the holiday season. I’ve always loved traditional green bean casserole made with cream of mushroom soup and crunchy onion rings and I’ll be honest, I’ve missed it since going Keto. I’ve tried a variety of substitutions but they just haven’t been as good….until now. While I’ve made multiple green bean casseroles that are low in carbs, I’ve finally discovered how to make the very best Keto Green Bean Casserole that turns out perfect each and every time.

I think my favorite part about this Keto Green Bean Casserole recipe is the fact that is uses fresh green beans and tangy cream cheese to create a taste that’s just unforgettable. To start, I added my avocado oil and garlic to a saute pan and browned it for about minutes. Then I immediately added in my green beans and sliced sweet onion and sauted them together for 10-12 minutes, until the green beans begin to soften but still had a crunch to them.
When my green beans and onions are just about cooked, I poured in my beef stock and added my cream cheese, mixing it all together over medium heat until the cream cheese was melted and combined with the beef stock to form a semi-thick sauce.
Once I had all the ingredients well combined, I transferred my Keto Green Bean Casserole to a casserole dish.
Then I topped it with my shredded sharp cheddar cheese.
After baking my Keto Green Bean Casserole at 350 degrees for 15 minutes (the cheese on top will be melty and brown), I removed it from the oven, topped it with my pieces of fried bacon and served it immediately.
Let me tell you, this Keto Green Bean Casserole is so flavorful and delicious and with just 4 net carbs per serving, it fits in perfectly with my Keto lifestyle while still allowing me to enjoy my favorite holiday side dish.
