If you are looking for the same old Green Bean Casserole this is not it! Mine has crackers & cheese in it, which makes it oh so good!

I have never really been a fan of the original classic version that everyone makes. To me it is just really runny and kind of mushy.

I found this recipe years ago in an old southern recipe book. I tried it and have been in love with it ever since.

Instead of stirring the cream of mushroom soup into it you layer it. So no more mushy soupy beans!

The addition of saltine crackers add a crunchy texture that everyone will love. This casserole is a family favorite around here. Here’s the recipe…
