Classic Green Bean Casserole Just Got Upgraded

I haven't always been a fan of green bean casserole. There was a brief year or two where I wasn't feelin' green vegetables as a kid. Don't we all go through funny phases? Things have changed, Green Bean Casserole is now one of my gotta have it side dishes. It's hard to mess with perfection, but I do believe this recipe I’m sharing today has completely succeeded. That's right, Classic Green Bean Casserole just got upgraded and you won't believe how easy it is to make. (sponsored post)

That classic green bean casserole you love, but better.

When I first spotted this recipe, I knew it was going to be a winner. It's not just the delicious addition of Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits.

The fact that this recipe has only 4 ingredients has met attention. Oh you know how I get with recipes with only a few ingredients.

Seriously, not only do I prefer easy recipes because they're just easy but it's also a time saver in the store.

No scrambling around to find ingredients like rare spices that I'll never use again.

Seems like you'd burn the biscuits too easily.

Can it be frozen?

I MUCH prefer drained canned green beans to the frozen. The texture of the frozen really turns me off. Otherwise, this looks like a fun variation on a classic.

I would think you could add chicken/turkey and have kind of a pot pie dish and make it a full meal, not just a side?
