After serving the traditional green bean casserole for many years, I decided to change it... my style! This recipe is my own, and it is not for the faint of heart... very rich and high in calories! Blondie ;^)

Green bean casserole is always a hit at the holiday table and this delicious recipe is a great twist on the classic dish. It's creamy, cheesy and over the top. The cream cheese adds tang and the celery adds a bit of crunch. I guarantee people will be going for seconds. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
