Cheesy Green Bean Casserole

I have made this a few times, and everyone has raved about it. I make it as a replacement for the typical “green bean casserole” that everyone makes for the holidays. I actually like it better anyway.

There are a few options that I have made along the way also, including subbing out the celery for water chestnuts (forgot to buy celery), fresh mushrooms instead of canned (because I could) and of course I use whatever cheese I have. I also think this would be amazing with some other veggies, like asparagus, broccoli, maybe even brussel sprouts if you like them. I have also made it with fresh and canned…canned works in a pinch, but fresh or frozen is best.

If you want the crunch on top like the other casserole, I suggest crushed pork rinds, Whisps (or your own fried cheese crisps or maybe some low carb croutons….OR French’s Fried Onions only have 3 carbs per 2 tablespoons (who knew??)
