Holidays just aren't the same without green bean casserole. My family loves the extra 'umph' the added mushrooms and cheese provide!

When we saw that Jennifer had added cheese to this traditional green bean casserole recipe we knew we had to try it! And much to our delight, the cheese took it up several notches. In fact, one person said that it was the best green bean casserole they'd ever eaten. Seriously cheesy, this will be a stellar addition to any holiday table.
