Green Bean is the main ingredients for this healthy casserole recipe. You can use fresh, frozen or canned beans for this recipe. 
2. Crispy Onions
Fried crispy onions are essential to this dish. Use this onion when you cook the recipe and also for garnishing the recipe. If you want to add onion but without fried, the taste is so delish adding the onions and you can substitute 1/2 tsp onion powder instead.

Can you Make Green Bean Casserole Ahead of Time?

This dish casserole can be made up to 48 hours or 2 days ahead of time. Cover it tightly and and store in the fridge until ready to bake.

Remove the dish from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before baking. If this is really cool, you may need to add extra cooking time for another 10 minutes.

Keep in mind that all the dish are not for freeze, separate the crispy onion for topping in a separate container so that it don’t get wet or moist. You have to place them in a ziploc bag untill ready to bake. You can store the cheese in this same process.
When you want to bake this, remember remove the dish from freeze and sit out for 15 to 20 minutes.

Tips on How To Make Green Bean Casserole with Fresh Green Beans:

➠ Not to dirty the dish, add some creamy base directly in the green beans casserole to create a nice creamy flavor.

➠ I like to use soy sauce for the extra savory flavor in the healthy casserole, but if you want you can also use soy Worcestershire sauce replace of soy sauce.

➠ For this recipe you can use sour cream or mushroom soup. I like to add mushroom soup instead of sour creamy for this fresh green bean casserole.

➠ For more extra punch of flavor add some garlic powder or few fresh mushroom and for more creamy based.

➠ For garnishing add the crispy bacon spread over on top in the casserole for added flavor and color. You can reserve 2 Tablespoons of bacon drippings to saute the onions and mushrooms in instead of butter.
