A Twist on a Timeless Holiday Dish

Nov 21, 2016 01:35AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features Food, Family Features



As millions of families across the country prepare to share holiday meals together, sometimes all it takes to perfect those revered moments is a twist on a timeless classic.

While it may be true that no holiday dinner is complete without the green bean casserole – a classic festive favorite – your guests could fall in love with a new take on tradition. This time around, try shaking things up with bacon and cheddar, or add some Italian flair with a differently seasoned casserole.

Either way, with premium ingredients like Del Monte Green Beans, which are picked at the peak of freshness with water and a touch of natural sea salt, you’ll be left begging your guests to leave some leftovers.

With Bacon and Cheddar Green Bean Casserole or Green Bean Casserole Italiano, all you have to do is make a couple of simple tweaks to add that new flavor to the holiday menu.
