Tasty Green Bean Casserole

Thanksgiving is almost here, and we are always looking for new side dishes to serve with our festive meal. This casserole is a good choice. It is easy, can be made ahead, and it is good!
2 7oz. pkgs. frozen French cut green beans
1 can cream of mushroom soup
3oz. cream cheese
1 ½ C shredded sharp cheddar
salt and pepper to taste
2oz. sliced almonds
1 clove garlic, minced
8oz. water chestnuts, drained and chopped
¼ C minced onion

Heat soup, onion and cheeses together until cheeses are melted. Mix in remaining ingredients, except almonds, and put into buttered casserole. Top with almonds and bake at 350* 30-45 minutes until bubbly, and beans are done.
I am sharing this recipe with Made It On Monday.


  1. This sounds like a wonderful twist on an old favorite! I love the addition of cream cheese & cheddar...mmmm & the almonds on top...yum!!!! This sounds like a winner!

  2. It is a good substitute for the usual green bean casserole. It has a nice flavor.
