Aunt Lynn's Green Bean Casserole

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

I tested this on my family last Thanksgiving. They have requested it this year too. I got the base recipe from another website but added and deleted some of the ingredients to my taste. I like it because it's a bit different from the traditional casserole.
