Chef James Ohern's "Not Your Mother's" Green Bean Casserole

Chef James Ohern's "Not Your Mother's" Green Bean Casserole

If you're from the US, you're probably familiar with the classic green bean casserole. Every year Chef James’ mom makes her own version of it with canned soup, but he created his own version. While a little more work, it's worth it for the final result. One bite of this and you'll never go back to the canned base again!
