  1. Hi Stephanie,
    I've been making this recipe for Thanksgiving dinner for a couple years now(nobody likes the traditional green bean casserole). I make the addition of dried cranberries....adds a bit of tart/sweetness. Fabulous

    1. I haven't tried it with fresh green beans. I'm sure you could, but I don't know the cooking time or quantity.

  4. Similar to my the "Sweet and Sour" green beans my grandparents always used to make. They added a bit of finely chopped onion cooked with the bacon.

  9. If taking these to a potluck, could I prepare the recipe that morning, then bake them later? If not, what you recommend for reheating the dish as a whole later?

    1. I think it would be fine to assemble the casserole ahead of time and bake it when you are ready.
