Green Bean Casserole

Growing up in my family, every Thanksgiving the table was adorned with the crispy onion-decorated casserole that smelled of comfort and home. Typically, not the friendliest of sides for calorie counting, the Green Bean Casserole has become a staple for a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Today’s recipe, created by our friends at Robard and to be featured in our November newsletter, transforms the traditional favorite into a side you will not feel guilt enjoying. You can make this side dish for your personal Thanksgiving dinner or whenever you have a craving of holiday favorite.
