This Cracked Out Green Bean Casserole is THE BEST! OMG! SO good! If you are new here and , don't know what "cracked out" means, it is a combination of cheddar, bacon and ranch. The flavor combination is totally addicting. I made a dip with these flavors way back in 2007, and I've been cracking out recipes ever since.

This Cracked Out Green Bean Casserole can be made ahead of time and refrigerated until you are ready to bake it. You could even freeze it for later! This make a lot of green beans. It would be great for a summer cookout, potluck and holiday meal. If you don't need to feed a crowd, you can cut the recipe in half or bake half and freeze half for later. We are both totally addicted to this easy casserole! We can't get enough of the yummy cheddar, bacon and ranch!! It is SO addictive!

  1. Steph, I made this casserole yesterday. It was a bit salty. Your recipe calls for one - 1 oz packet of ranch powder. The packets I had read .4 oz which I used. Was this too much? We really liked the flavors!
    Please advise.
    Thanks!

    1. I use Hidden Valley Ranch Mix - those packets are 1 ounce. A 1 ounce package is 3 Tablespoons. If it was too salty, try cutting down the Ranch mix to 2 Tablespoons.

    2. Thank you! In all due respect, I have a hidden valley ranch packet here and it reads 0.4 oz. this packet makes 16 oz dressing. Maybe that is the problem. Just trying to be accurate.
      It is good to know there are three tbsp in one ounce. I have the bottle of the spice so I'll start using that.
      Again, thank you.

    3. Anne- I just looked it up on Hidden Valley's website. I use this one - Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix. Looks like you have a different packet variety. Maybe the Buttermilk Recipe packet. The original packet is one ounce and is 3 Tablespoons. The different packet could definitely make a difference in the salty taste.

  4. This looks like a great recipe! I'm wondering if you know if you could use almond, coconut or soy milk instead of buttermilk? My dad can't have dairy and I'd like to make this for Thanksgiving this year. Thanks!!

    1. I don't really cook with those dairy alternatives, so I can't say how it would turn out. I would think it would be fine, but I haven't tried it.
