Grandma's Cheesy Green Beans

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by DDW7976

This side dish has been at every holiday meal as long as I can remember; it wouldn't be right without it. We prefer this bean casserole over the typical one with cream of mushroom soup. The almonds are great for a little crunch but we usually top ours with the fried onions. This year I made it a day ahead of time and threw it in the crockpot to heat; this saves space in the oven during holiday meals.

These are excellent. I used fresh green beans. I blanched them in boiling water for 2 minutes then set them aside. Thanks for the recipe. :)
