Alternative Green Bean Casserole Recipe

Green Bean Casserole

If you're looking for an alternative Green Bean Casserole recipe for this Thanksgiving, this recipe is for you! While I like the traditional Cream of Mushroom Soup Green Bean Dish, I'm not a huge fan of cream soups so I thought we'd try this out.


Of course I still had to use French's Onions because Green Bean Casserole without French's Onions would just be wrong, but you could also take those out if your family doesn't love them. Either way, this is a great alternative to the regular recipe, and a different dish to add to your Thanksgiving Feast.  (And if you're looking for a full meal to make this week with those yummy French's Onions, try out my absolute favorite Heaven Sent Cheesy Baked Spaghetti recipe ~ I promise, you'll love this one and it works great with all the sales this week!)

    Cheddar cheese and sour cream. Always a terrible combination. 🙂
