Momma’s Green Bean Casserole

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe before now. I wouldn’t have realized it if my oldest daughter hadn’t asked for the recipe. I figured I might as well share it with everyone because things are getting a little hectic around here as we have packed up a few things as we prepare for our new home and who knows where this recipe might end up?

One of my fondest memories from when I was little was sitting on the back porch with my Mom-mom helping her with the beans and other goodies she had harvested from her garden.

As I got older I did this with my kids as well. I can still remember when we had a Doberman, named Mac, who loved green beans. The little stinker would run right up to the washtub and steal the beans every chance he got!

This recipe is definitely a family favorite and is requested at EVERY Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner we have. I have made it with green beans and pole beans, that we’ve bought from Southwestern Produce, it gets gobbled up every time. This makes a big batch so you may want to cut the portions in half if you aren’t planning to feed an army!
