Take the classic green bean casserole recipe It's simple, easy to make, and the creamy, salty retro goodness just makes everybody think of childhood with a soft filter lens. But you can add just a few things to the classic recipe to make it even better.
Check out my easy green bean casserole recipe ideas. I'll give you suggestions for changing the sauce, adding mix-ins like water chestnuts, bacon or caramelized onions, and my favorite adjustment, changing the topping. I like crushed cornflakes or natural crispy onions, like Lars crispy onions (compare prices). They provide the ideal textural contrast to the creamy casserole.
