Non-Traditional Green Bean Casserole Recipe

Non Traditional Green Bean Casserole recipe from Aldi

Green Bean Casserole Recipe

After sharing my recent Aldi trip, I thought it would be fun to show you a recipe I had there and then created at home.  I was so inspired to try some new recipes!  One of my favorites was the non-traditional green bean casserole we had at dinner.  I’m one who doesn’t like to mess with perfection, but this was really, really good.

What I liked about it was the fact that the green beans were not canned green beans.  It made a huge difference. I also really enjoyed the corn being a part of the dish.

I did change a few things.  I did leave out the bacon.  I also did not add as much of the white mixture to the green beans.  It seemed a bit much to me.  You can find the original recipe here.  All ingredients are from Aldi!

So… have you ever tried a non-traditional green bean casserole recipe?

    my family loves this, it’s so good

  2. Question…I’m also making a corn casserole so I don’t want to add corn. Should I add more green beans?

    1. I think using more green beans in substitution of corn should work fine! Let me know how it goes. 🙂
