The Best Ever Green Bean Cassarole

I love green bean casserole and this is a recipe we found and tweaked last year. It is so good that my 5 year old that doesn't eat anything with vegetables lately will sit and eat a bowl like it is cereal. I thought I would share it here since Thanksgiving is just days away. I will be making some of this and will post pictures soon.

Very yummy my kids love it and will eat a whole bowl.
