I grew up eating a lot of casseroles with “cream of” soup bases. I always especially loved green bean casserole, but I didn’t love the texture of the canned green beans.

Several years ago, I swapped out the canned for fresh and the results were SO much tastier! It’s a small change that makes a big difference.

I prefer this version of green bean casserole without any canned soup in it, but this recipe is definitely quicker and easier, which is just what is often needed when preparing Thanksgiving dinner!
