Want a new green bean casserole that will WOW the whole family during the holidays? This casserole is the best and will be having your family begging for more.

Holiday’s are a crazy time of year. We are running to Grandma’s house, preparing side dishes, and scrambling trying to find an open store to get the few ingredients that my absent-minded brain has forgotten.

But, do you know what makes it worth it?

When the whole family is gathered around the table, eating the delicious food that everyone has prepared, and enjoying the conversations that are floating throughout the room.

Green Bean Casserole

Not Your Regular Green Bean Casserole

Growing up, we would have green bean casserole for Thanksgiving and sometimes even Christmas.  You know the dish, that recipe that calls for French’s Fried Onions. Not my favorite.

Just a few years ago, I tried a new green bean casserole recipe.


My family was amazed at the delicious side dish and of course, they had seconds! SCORE!

My recipe was requested again for our next holiday meal.
