I really enjoyed flipping my traditional Green Bean Casserole.  The flipped version turned out to be every bit as flavorful as the original, but healthier and much lower in points!  This dish will certainly show up on my family's holiday table.

When I Flip recipes, I never know what the final result will be—with this recipe I knew I was on the right track when my kitchen filled with an appetizing aroma!  When I removed my bubbling casserole from the oven I couldn't resist scooping up a dish.



The crispy topping on my casserole features my healthy Master Breadcrumb Mix and some delicious french fried onions (I couldn't forget those).  You don't need to wait for the holidays to make this simple Green Bean Casserole. Your family will love it—I received two thumbs up from mine!  Enjoy.

Flip2Tasty wishes you and your family a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving Holiday!

    1. Thanks Jan! I'm not finished yet-- Look for a couple of "leftover" turkey recipes. I never know what to do with all my leftover turkey.
      Thanks again. You're the best! Terri
