I enjoy green bean casserole as much as the next person. The creamy beans topped with crispy fried onions are delicious. The only thing I don’t like about the casserole is the use of creamed soup. I found this recipe that not only leaves out the creamed soup but adds in cheese and a delicious, crisp topping.
The green bean casserole is cheesy and tasty. I enjoyed the creamy cheese sauce and the combination of breadcrumbs, fried onions, and cheese on top. It’s a great alternative to the original casserole and perfect for any cheese lover.
