TATER GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE
During the holidays, I am a side dish fanatic. Yeah, the turkey and ham is nice and all but what I look forward to the most is the side dishes. I love a good ole green bean casserole. So, I thought, how can I 'beef' it up a little without changing it too much. Y'all, I tossed in some finely diced potatoes and it turned out amazing!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
O'Brien Potatoes are frozen finely diced potatoes, onions, green and red peppers. They are found in the frozen food section of your grocery store near the hash brown potatoes.
You could substitute with shredded frozen hash browns. For this recipe, if you want to use fresh potatoes you would need to finely dice them then par-boil them so they would cook evenly with the other ingredients.
I will tell you that my entire family detest mushrooms. None of us like them and I can tell you that absolutely no one tastes mushrooms in this dish. However, you could substitute with cream of chicken or cream of potato. If you like the flavor of celery then you could even use cream of celery.
To turn this side dish into a main dish, add some protein! Add one pound of cooked and crumbled ground beef, chicken or turkey to step one of this recipe.
