This is my version of making the classic greeen bean casserole from scratch, instead of using canned beans, canned mushrooms and canned soup. The only part I use prepared is the French fried onions- which you could make from scratch if you wanted to. So is it really better from scratch? You decide. But even if you choose to go with cans, you have an idea how it can be made. I do hope you try this one and enjoy.

Have happy holidays! Until  next time-
