Dawn Hornsby's Unusual Green Bean Casserole

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Traci Jeff Poole2

My mom used to make this all the time. She would experiment with all types of food and in turn, her creations were wonderful!! Though, I do not know if this is one of her original recipes but it was handwritten in her notebook of recipes that was given to me at the time of her death.
