Christmas Green Bean Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Tina D. Breen

Green Bean Casserole with Cranberries for a sweet flavor twist and holiday presentation to an old favorite. I like to prepare the casserole the day before baking, so the cranberries plump up and flavors blend.

I had to give this a try for Christmas. I liked the idea of putting the dried cranberries in the traditional green bean casserole, but this just didn't work for me as well as I was hoping for. I think most of the problem was that the amount of milk varied by 1/4 cup from the original recipe which calls for 1/2 cup milk. The casserole was a little dry. Also maybe it was just cooked a little too long as well, since the original recipe also only bakes it for 25 mins , then stir, put onions on top and bake for 5 mins. I may try it again with these changes and see if it helps. Thanks for the idea of adding the cranberries and the slivered almonds anyway! Tweeky
