This isn’t your grandmother’s recipe, but this Bacon-Topped Green Bean Casserole will be at least as well received at any gathering. It takes 40 minutes of prep and bakes in half an hour – now, that’s what I call a breeze! Make it right away, or chill until you are ready. I think that I have seen some version of green bean casserole show up at most every formal Easter, Thanksgiving, or Christmas meal to which I have ever been. Though it was usually good, I more often than not thought that it would be much better with an upgrade. Well, this is the upgrade. Yum!
I was hard pressed on whether to call this a side dish or a main course; in the end, I suppose it is still a side, albeit a rather hearty one. Being able to chill everything for a day or so before final baking, if necessary, makes it really convenient if you are organizing a large meal that requires plenty of advanced prep and planning.
