  1. Green Bean Casserole is already so good! I can’t wait to add bacon this year and make it even better! Thank you for this recipe!!!

  2. I made this recipe tonight…we loved it. I used a red onion; my onion hater 6year old thought they were additional pieces of bacon (WIN!) I added 2 chopped (smallish) chicken breasts to it to make a more substantial meal. MMMM….

    1. Oh great! I’m glad that you liked it. Great idea on making it more complete w/ the chicken! I’ll have to do that next time. 🙂

  3. Great timing for something different to take to holiday meals! I may use microwave bacon to save some time but look forward to trying this out. Thanks Becky!
