If you’re American, you’ve probably been served green bean casserole at a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. And if you’re anything like me, you’ve spent the rest of the year waiting for the holidays to roll around so you had good reason to eat it again.

Well, let me tell you…this air fryer green bean casserole is SO EASY and SO FAST that there is no reason to wait for a holiday meal.

We make just enough for 4-6 people in the air fryer, with just a handful of ingredients, in just 15 minutes from start to finish.

Hello and welcome to your new favorite weeknight side dish!

You can even serve this up with our air fryer turkey breast at Thanksgiving!

Ingredient Notes:

Ingredients for green bean casserole spread out on a countertop.

Green beans – We prefer canned cut green beans, but the French style green beans will likely work too.

Cream Soup – Traditionally, cream of mushroom soup is used in green bean casserole. I use cream of chicken because we have a few mushroom haters in our family. Both work perfectly here, so use what your family likes.

Mix the casserole– Add your beans, cream of mushroom soup, shredded cheese, half of your fried onions, and soy sauce to a medium bowl and stir to combine. Add this mixture to a baking dish that fits in your air fryer. We used a 7″ baking dish for ours that came with our air fryer accessory kit.

Bake the casserole- Add your baking dish to the air fryer and cook for 5 minutes at 350 degrees F. At this point sprinkle your remaining fried onions over the casserole and cook for 3 more minutes.

FAQ:

How long will the casserole last?

Store your green bean casserole in a sealed dish in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Reheat in the air fryer, covered with foil, at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes to rewarm.

Why is green bean casserole so popular?

This simple green bean casserole recipe was created by the Campbell’s test kitchen and was an instant hit. The savory flavors and creamy sauce paired with the crisp onions works well together. Our air fryer version makes it even faster and quicker, so you can enjoy green bean casserole as often as possible.

Air Fryer Green Bean Casserole

Yield: 6 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes

This green bean casserole is creamy, savory, and has the perfect crunch from the onions. It tastes so good could eat the whole pan by myself in one sitting.

Ingredients

  • 2 (14 ounce) cans cut green beans
  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) cream of mushroom soup
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 3 ounces French’s fried onions, divided

Instructions

  1. Add everything but half of the onions to a mixing bowl and stir well to combine. 
  2. Pour mixture into a 7 inch round baking dish (see notes). 
  3. Air fry at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining half of fried onions and cook for 3 minutes more.
  4. Serve hot.

Notes

Choose a baking dish that will fit inside your air fryer. Small disposable foil pans often work.

Cream of chicken soup works well in place of cream of mushroom if you have picky eaters in your family.

For this recipe, are you using condensed soup, and do you dilute it with water to regular strength before adding to the rest of ingredients? Also, if I used Cream of Celery Soup instead, would that make the final dish *too vegetable-ey* (if that is even a word)?

Hi Lee! You don’t need to dilute the soup. Just use it straight from the can. I’ve never tried this cream of celery as I’m not a huge celery fan, so I can’t say how it will effect the taste. Should work fine otherwise though.
