My Moms Cornflake Green Bean Casserole

For as long as I can remember for Thanksgiving and Christmas my mom made her cornflake green bean casserole. It was one of her favorite side dishes to serve at our holiday get-togethers.

Since she passed I have carried on the tradition, it wouldn’t feel like the holidays without it.

This cornflake green bean casserole is far from the traditional green bean casserole. I actually never knew others existed since this was all she served over the years.

The cornflake green bean casserole is creamy and cheesy topped with a nice crunch for texture. It’s so good and a nice break from traditional at your holiday table.

Best part, you can throw this together in no time and it is even better the next day as leftovers. I always make extras since this is one of my sisters’ favorites and she can bring some home.
