Green Bean Casserole Fritters

Enjoy green bean casserole fritter-style in this new twist on a classic Thanksgiving favorite. The traditional ingredients are all there, but instead of baking in a casserole dish, these green beans are turned into fritters that bake in the oven and get topped with creamy yogurt and french-fried onions. Feel free to add a bit of crumbled bacon on top too if you'd like!

Nutrition Profile:


  • Cooking spray

  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil, such as grapeseed or avocado

  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms (about 4 ounces)

  • 1 large shallot, chopped

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 16-ounce package frozen french-cut green beans, thawed, squeezed dry and coarsely chopped

  • 1 ½ tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt, divided

  • 1 large egg

  • ¼ cup crushed packaged french-fried onions


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Generously coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms, shallot, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until the vegetables have softened, about 4 minutes. Stir in green beans and Worcestershire; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with flour and stir to combine. Whisk 1/2 cup yogurt and egg together in a small bowl. Add to the mixture in the pan and stir well to coat.

  3. Scoop 2 generous tablespoons of the green bean mixture into a mound on the prepared baking sheet; flatten into a 3-inch round. Repeat with the remaining mixture, making 12 fritters. Lightly coat the tops with cooking spray. Bake, turning once, until crisp and golden, about 20 minutes. To serve, top each fritter with 1 teaspoon yogurt and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon crushed onions.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
