Green Bean Cheesy Dinner Party Casserole

Recipe by DiLo4602

I've had more requests for this classy, easy recipe over the years than I can count! It's unique from the soup and french fried onion version, and was a favourite of an old friend - the ultimate dinner party hostess of the 60's and 70's. I've never been fond of green beans, but this changed my mind and is a hit with all ages. It's perfect for a family dinner and can be made the day before and reheated for guests. It's a real winner.
