    ashleyns227's Note:

    I got this green bean casserole from a cajun cookbook. It takes a little bit longer to prepare than traditional green bean casseroles but is well worth it!

      Heat the bacon in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat until lightly browned and tender. Add 1 onion (chopped) and saute' until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the garlic and saute' a few more minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the green beans and enough broth or water to just cover, bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, and simmer, covered for 25 to 35 minutes, until beans are tender and have melted into the cooking liquid. Season the beans generously with salt and pepper.
    3. 3
      Strain the cooking liquid from the beans and reserve (you should have about 2 1/2 cups).
