This recipe for The Best Green Bean Casserole from Scratch will show you how simple it is to make this classic holiday side dish without using any "shortcut" ingredients.

Green bean casserole is my assignment for Thanksgiving. This year I will have to try this recipe instead of using the "shortcuts".

I'm always responsible for making green bean casserole for Thanksgiving, so this recipe will definitely come in handy.

I've made a green been casserole from scratch, but it was such a pain! I wouldn't mind trying this easier version.
