Green Bean Casserole with Bacon

Paul, my husband, simply loves green beans, so this Green Bean Casserole with Bacon was just what he wanted. He somehow especially loves it when the green beans come from a can, instead of fresh. With every other vegetable he rather has them fresh, except green beans. So luckily for him this green bean casserole recipe with bacon asks for canned ones.

I omitted the salt, since with the bacon, the casserole already had enough salt in it for us. Also I added less ground pepper than a half teaspoon, that was enough seasoning for us. I didn’t have French fried onions, so just glazed a sliced onion. I only had 4 slices of Cheddar cheese in the fridge instead of half a cup of grated. That was enough.

Spray or grease a baking dish. Pour the green bean mixture in the baking dish, spread evenly. Sprinkle with cheddar.
