Savory Green Bean Casserole Recipe

Savory Green Bean Casserole Recipe

If you want a slimmed down version on the classic. This recipe calls for calls for frozen green beans instead of canned, a from-scratch sauce in place of a can of soup and a homemade onion topping. The result is a creamy casserole with wonderful flavor!—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
