Holiday Green Bean Casserole Goodness

This post brought to you by Sam’s Club. All opinions are 100% mine.

Delicious food is one my favorite parts of the holidays. The familiar, festive food is comforting, full of memories, and so tasty.

One of my most loved holiday recipes is Green Bean Casserole. Who doesn’t love the tender green beans, creamy mushroom soup, and crisp fried onions? It’s such a delicious flavor combination. Green bean casserole has been part of our family holiday dinners for as long as I can remember. My Grandma is usually the one in charge of this savory side dish. At every holiday meal, my family gathers around the table, and the meal wouldn’t be complete without green bean casserole. I look forward to it every year.

I n addition to my yearly favorites, I am also always up for trying other great recipes like these from Sam’s Club that are perfect for holiday meals. I really like how the recipes use familiar, standard ingredients to create new twists on old favorites. Many of the recipes use the same ingredients used to make green bean casserole. This makes it really easy to serve green bean casserole at one meal, and use the same ingredients to make other delicious recipes. Nobody will get bored with the same side dishes! It’s a great way to branch out and try new recipes without feeling like you have to stock up on all sorts of ingredients you won’t use for anything else.

One recipe that really looks delish is the Crunchy Onion Mashed Potatoes. It combines flavors that everybody loves into a new favorite: mashed potatoes, garlic, cheese, and crispy Cheddar French Fried Onions. It sounds so delicious! I plan to make it this holiday season, and I’m sure it will be a big hit with everyone.
