What Makes This Pinworthy?

For all green bean casserole fans, this recipe is a must-try. Let all eaters be warned, however- while this recipe boasts a lot of the same flavor as the traditional Thanksgiving dish, the fact that it is made from scratch turns it into a completely different recipe. Everything from the breaded onions on top to the cream sauce is made from scratch, and the end result is a tastier and fresher tasting side dish.

This recipe could be considered a lightened up version of the traditional dish. Instead of using processed ingredients that come from cans, this recipe boasts fresh vegetables and onions as well as a homemade cream sauce.

There is no denying that this recipe requires more effort than traditional green bean casserole, yet it is worth it. This casserole has a less mushy texture and boasts better flavors. Additionally, it looks lovely once baked- the green beans remain vibrant and give the dish a beautiful look.
