I have a confession to make. I’ve never been a fan of the green bean casserole that’s so popular at Thanksgiving.

But I’ve always wanted to like it, so I’ve spent some time experimentingwith variations on the green bean casserole theme and came up with something that I really love–Green Bean Casserole Cups.

These tasty little morsels have all of the flavors of the classic casserole, including a creamy homemade sauce, served up in a tasty, bite-sized filo shell.

And of course, they’re topped off with some crispy French fried onions! Those are a must in my book. I don’t know about you, but I eat French fried onions straight from the container.

I really and truly dislike the usual green bean casserole, but I couldn’t stop eating these tasty little bites.

The number one reason this version of green bean casserole is so good is that the recipe uses fresh or frozen vegetables, rather than canned. Trust me, it’s worth the few extra minutes it takes to chop up some green beans and mushrooms!

But with the help of pre-made filo dough, and store-bought French fried onions, these savory morsels are super quick and easy to make.

I mean, if you wanted to go all out, you could also make your own filo dough and crispy fried onions, but that’s pretty time consuming, and I do like to take shortcuts where I can when it comes to holiday dinner prep.

If you feel like I do about this traditional Thanksgiving side dish, give this version a try! There may just be a green bean casserole lover in you too!

Whether you serve these as an appetizer or a twist on the popular side dish, these Green Bean Casserole Cups are sure tobe a hit at your Thanksgiving dinner.
