Green Bean Casserole Variations
This casserole can easily be made with and without mushrooms. You could also use canned. You can use whole, cut frozen green beans as well.
You could also technically just add the onions on the cast iron pan and toss it in to the oven. But I don’t think serving the skillet is that amazing, especially since you typically make this for holiday meals.
