Recipe by Donna
This is now my favorite green bean casserole. I used to always make the good old favorite with the mushroom soup and fried onions on top. This is always a hit at our family holiday get togethers.

extremely good recipe. I can see why it would have to be doubled for family gatherings. I ate more green beans than usual. Definatly a keeper of a recipe. I probably may have liked better If I had used frozen green beans. All I had was canned. Next time I think I would use 1 Tbs. of brown sugar I like the tartness of vinegar and It was too sweet for me. UPDATE: used 1 strip bacon, 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard and brown sugar not sure over 1 Tbs. but just tossed in some more. the extra dry mustard cut the sweetness so I used the larger amount of brown sugarUPDATE TO THE UPDATE Made for dinner party everyone loved. and recipe request from woman who wants to make for her family gatherings.
