If you are looking to add a new twist to an old favorite, then I have a great recipe for you to try! Before finding this recipe , I could take or leave green bean casserole. It was on the table at all major holiday meals and quite honestly, I did not understand why. Then, I made this recipe (what has now become “my” green bean casserole) and soon I had a new favorite side dish. It’s a little exta work but well worth it. Cutting the beans in half lengthwise can be tedious but I do not recommend skipping it as I tried that once and the casserole did not taste as good. This dish will work best at a meal where there are lots of sides to choose from as eating a large serving might sit kind of heavy. I did make this once with broccoli because fresh green beans were not available at the market and it turned out okay. I would highly recommend this recipe for anyone who enjoys a good casserole dish.
