  • Ingredients:
  • 8 pcs bacon
  • 6 cups fresh green beans trimmed and cut in half
  • 2 cans cream of mushroom soup 10.5 oz each
  • 1 1/2 C French's fried onions
  • 1/3 C whole milk
  • 1/2 yellow onion


  • Directions:
  • Dice both the uncooked bacon and onion.
  • Prep the inside of your Instant Pot by spraying the inside of the instant pot with nonstick spray.
  • Add the bacon and onion to the instant pot.
  • Set it to saute'.
  • Continue to cook the bacon until it is lightly browned and the onions is translucent.
  • In a medium size bowl whisk together the milk and soup.
  • Add the green beans to the instant pot.
  • Slowly pour the milk/ soup combination on top of the green beans.
  • Stir the green beans until they are coated with the milk/soup mixture.
  • Set the instant pot to manual, low pressure for 5 minutes*
  • Once it has completed cooking quick release.
  • Add half of the fried onions to the green bean mixture.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Scoop the green bean casserole into a baking dish.
  • Turn your oven to broil on low.
  • Sprinkle the remaining of the fried onions on top of the casserole.
  • Broil for 5 minutes to brown the crispy onions.


The length of cooking time really depends on how you like your green beans cooked.  Here's a general guideline:
  • Firm Crunchy Texture; Low Pressure 0 Minutes
  • Soft Bean but still Firm; low Pressure 2 minutes
  • Soft Bean but not mushy; low Pressure 5 Minutes
The cooking process starts as the Instant Pot comes up to pressure which is why for crispy beans all you really need is the steam while it comes to pressure.
