This is a highly rated recipe from Paula Deen of the Food Channel and worth making! I have tweaked it slightly and doubled the complete amounts to suit our tastes - Paula has a house seasoning blend mix which is 1/2 cup salt mixed with 2 tablespoons black pepper and 2 tablespoons garlic powder, she uses a small amount in this casserole, you have the option of omitting the fresh garlic and adding it in, store the remaining mix in an air tight container for up to 6 months, I strongly recommend using low-sodium cream of mushroom soup

I also shortened the cooking time from three to two and a half hours. Perfection!

Um, hello. A make-ahead version of the much loved green bean casserole? Sign me up, baby. I happen to love green bean casserole, even the popular recipes made with my arch-nemesis: cream of mushroom soup. But I have to say,
