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?
