Crunchy Green Bean Casserole

Becky Twitchell

This is my own variation to the old tried and true string bean casserole. My family has loved this for years, and now my daughter makes it for her family.

I always use cheddar cheese soup instead of mushroom when i make green bean casserole-so i used cheddar cheese soup and the bacon was a really big hit-something different than same old casserole-will make it again.

Great recipe! Tastes wonderful with the bacon & water chestnuts. I used sliced water chestnuts and didn't chop..nice and crunchy. Also used 1 big bag of frozen french cut green beans. I'll serve this at Thanksgiving, for sure.
