My husband always loves it when I make this and people always are asking me for the recipe. It's pretty easy and works great as a side dish.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Green bean casserole is a holiday staple and this recipe really is beyond yummy. Using fresh green beans and a homemade sauce is what makes this green bean casserole recipe so delicious. We were impressed by how quick the sauce is to make and the casserole is easy to put together. We loved the cheesy, buttery and crunchy topping. It's sooo good!

Note: This makes enough to fill a 9x9 baking pan. Double the recipe and use a 9x13 pan if you're cooking for a crowd (or want seconds). The Test Kitchen
