Cheesy Bacon Green Bean Casserole Pot Pie


Thanksgiving is just around the corner so I thought I’d share one more killer side dish that will have you licking your pie plate 🙂  Green bean casserole has been around for ages…..and I LOVE it, all versions of it actually. I thought it would be fun to make my green bean casserole into this beautiful buttery puff pasty topped pot pie.

It is sinfully delicious and I hope you enjoy! No worries, I’ve got a yummy Thanksgiving dessert coming up first thing Monday morning 🙂

Here’s your line-up 🙂

Cook up your bacon, one of the best smells ever!

I dare you not to snag a few pieces. I couldn’t resist.

Don’t be afraid of the cheese sauce. A little butter, flour, seasonings, chicken broth and cheese. Easy 🙂

I like to boil the fresh beans for a few minutes so they aren’t ultra crunchy. Just enough 🙂  Note that you can use 2 cans, (drained) of green beans if you prefer.

Saute your onions and garlic, mmmm!

Add your beans and bacon to your onions and garlic 🙂

….and the cheese sauce!

Pour into a nice little pie plate…

Spread evenly….

Dip your finger in the cheese sauce for a little taste 🙂

Trim your puff pasty.

Lay over pie plate.

Tuck edges, make a few slits for the steam and time to bake!

Holy Moly does that look good or what?

Let cool for about 15 minutes, then dig in!
