Green Bean Casserole

Green Bean Casserole

The Best Green Bean Casserole

This is definitely my favorite Green Bean Casserole recipe.  Just have a look at the ingredients and I think you’ll agree or at least understand why I feel the way I do.  I mean, Bacon says it all doesn’t it?  I’ve been wanting to throw down some traditional Holiday recipes, this season, that are a little more vibrant than what we’ve been use to in the past.  At the same time though, I wanted to make sure that the change was subtle enough to not take over the recipe and actually ruin the over all flavor.  I believe this recipe is more than successful with that, adding even 3 other ingredients; Portobello Mushrooms, Bread Dressing Stuffing and Cheese!
