The “typical” green bean casserole that a lot of people find on their holiday tables is traditionally made with cream of mushroom soup and canned fried onions. I grew up on this and there is definitely a nostalgia to it. One year I decided to make it from scratch instead and OH MY! It is just amazing and completely worth the additional steps and time to make it. Sometimes I will skip making my own fried onions and use the canned kind, but I will ALWAYS make the sauce from scratch now.
This Parmesan Garlic Green Bean Casserole boasts some extra flavor from adding Parmesan cheese and a heavy hand of garlic. The flavors are prominent but do not overpower the rest of the foods on your plate.
There is always SO MUCH COOKING happening on holidays, but I will always make a green bean casserole from scratch now. What I really love about this recipe is you can easily make the fried onions (or use the canned version) and the casserole itself ahead of time. Just keep the onions separate. Then when you are ready to serve, pop the onions on top and finish baking the casserole. I will spend at least one day making absolutely everything I can in advance for holiday meals so when the day comes, I can spend more time with friends and family, and less time in the kitchen.
This Parmesan Garlic Green Bean Casserole is such a fun and delicious twist on a classic recipe. A green bean casserole is one of my favorite traditional dishes to have at the holiday table. It just doesn’t feel like the holidays without it!
