Aurora's Green Bean Casserole

This is a simple recipe I put together to use up the abundant supply of green beans over the summer. My father-in-law liked it so much that he bought me more beans every chance he got. :D

This side dish is very good served piping hot or at room temperature.

It also doubles well, so go ahead and make more!

Cover the casserole pan tightly with foil and bake for 1 hour. Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 10 minutes.
