Three Cheese Green Bean Casserole (Secret Ingredient)

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This low carb recipe is intensely flavorful, easy to make, and healthy to boot: three cheese green bean casserole.
I found the green bean casserole recipe from and loved the use of pork rinds (the “secret ingredient”) as breadcrumbs. I made a few changes to the recipe, namely adding a third cheese and liquid smoke while changing up quantities and eliminating some ingredients.

¼ lbs. bacon, cooked and roughly chopped
2 tbsp. butter
½ small onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced

3 tbsp. dry white wine
4 oz. cream cheese, softened and cut into small pieces
½ C Chicken bone broth
1 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded + ½ oz. more for topping

½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce
½ tsp. Liquid smoke

½ tsp Pink Himalayan salt
Pinch of ground black pepper
½ oz. Pork rinds
½ tsp Dot home seasoning:

1. Preheat oven to 350; Use non-stick spray on casserole dish (or better yet, use ghee).
2. Combine the cooked green beans and bacon in a mixing bowl; set aside.
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; Add onion and sauté until onions for about 1-2 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute more or until garlic becomes fragrant.
3. Add lemon juice and wine; cook until the alcohol evaporates, about 1 minute. Mix in the broth and let the temperature come back up to a simmer. Once the sauce starts simmering again, add in the cream cheese and stir until it melts.
4. Lower the temperature slightly and add in 1 ounce of the cheddar and all of the Parmesan cheeses. Stir the sauce as the cheese melts.
5. Stir in mustard, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, Himalayan salt and pepper to combine.
6. Pour sauce over green beans and bacon and mix to combine. Add the mixture into the oiled casserole dish.
7. Sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese over the top of the casserole.
8. Crush the pork rinds into pieces the size of breadcrumbs. Place the pork rinds in a separate mixing bowl and add in the Dot’s home seasoning (or salt and pepper to taste) and olive oil. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the casserole.
9. Bake in oven for 20 minutes.
10. Enjoy!
