World's Best Green Bean Casserole

I was given the assignment of bringing green bean casserole to Thanksgiving Dinner this year. I wasn't really looking forward to making it, as it's probably one of my least favorite things on the dinner table each year, so I decided to look for a different recipe besides the can of green beans, can of cream of mushroom soup recipe that people typically think of. Boy am I glad I went searching! I truly found the world's best green bean casserole. I made a huge dish, and it was nearly completely gone by the end of the meal. Several people even went back for seconds! Enjoy!

Here is a link to the recipe.
