Sooooo good!!!


Oh my god, I know. I can't eat canned, and I always feel like I'm such a snob about it, but come on! Of vegetables in cans, corn is really the only one that passes muster (and why is canned corn better than frozen, while frozen peas are better than canned?) I usually just do them simple with butter and toasted slivered almonds, but perhaps I need to revisit the whole casserole thing. Now that I think about it, I've never had it made properly with fresh green beans. Trying soon!

You know what's the worst? FROZEN GREEN BEANS. Uggggh. Why do they always turn a sad shade of green-brown?

I wholeheartedly agree with your passion for fresh green beans. :)


in real life i wholeheartedly agree about fresh green beans, but in green bean casserole i like the soggier ones from a can. i know, i know! it's just that it's such a fake food to me (until i moved to the south, i for realsies thought it was a fake food that people on tv ate. see also: meatloaf, tuna casserole, pork rinds) that i kind of like how it's all weird and fake and soggy.

Fresh green beans are the best! They're a staple of mine when I go to the farmer's market. xo, rv



yummm! i love green beans! will have to try this out soon!!!

Monica @ Soirees  Such

This looks great! and I totally agree: why canned anything for that matter, if you can get it fresh.


ahh this looks so good!


I have have an abhorrence to the squeakiness of fresh green beans. I love the idea of them, but I hate the way they feel in my teeth :D Looks delish though!

Looks so edible, comfy food and sounds easy to make.



I just gotta say... NEVER canned green beans. Go frozen if you can't get fresh. Canned are worthless mushy gross outs. There. That's my opinion.


Woah, spooky. I've been on SUCH a green bean kick lately. I just had a bit of a meltdown in the grocery store because there was none left. Will definitely give this recipe a go once they;re back in stock.


Looks delicious! I love this style of homely style cooking.


looks yummy.. :)

Canned are very gross and they are packed full of sodium and things that you already have a ton of in this casserole. I mostly use frozen... despite the squeakiness. I also put in Wortchestershire and bacon!
Very Yummy!!!

So at the risk of sounding like a snob... I can't stand those packaged fried onions but my hubby loves 'em. I wonder if anyone has any thoughts on substitutions without the use of a deep frier. Maybe it's one of those things that just can't be replicated though- like Pringles :)

Violets and Cardamom

Looks so delicious! Can't wait to try this out using fresh green beans! I have only ever had it with canned.


Canned green beans make me gag. But, I do love a good green bean casserole made with fresh beans! I like to add a little brown sugar and dijon mustard to mine.

Erin @ The Speckled Palate

This sounds absolutely wonderful and a LOT BETTER than those casseroles that call for canned green beans. As someone who is all about fresh ingredients, this recipe makes me smile. And hopefully, it'll make my husband, who happens to LOVE canned green beans *gag*, a believer!


I love green beans! I totally agree they are awesome :)



dare to be different, lisa. Love your honesty and attitude. :) xo. Emma


melt down in the grocery store are totally appropriate, in my opinion. don't let anyone tell you different. xo. Emma


I am actually sort of with you, I sometimes use Panko bread crumbs instead. but I made this one for family so I thought I'd keep it classic.

but I hear you. :) xo. Emma


Bread crumbs, any kind you like. :)


I look forward to holiday food and always get disappointed after I eat it. It's actually pretty gross. The best Thanksgiving food I had was last year when my boyfriend and I cooked all the classics with fresh and organic ingredients. It's so nice to let the real flavor of the vegetables shine through, and know that you're actually getting nutrients from them. Atomic canned foods are creepy. Thanks for sharing how to make real cream of mushroom too! :)
