Make this cheesy green bean and corn casserole recipe for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and every other holiday you celebrate!

Growing up, I always looked forward to both of my grandmas’ cooking over the holidays. Grandma Adee made all the best cookies, and Grandma Gall made some seriously amazing casseroles. This Green Bean and Corn Casserole recipe was always one of my favorites!

Some foods just taste like home, and this is one of them. Grandma Gall called it “Royal Casserole,” although I’m not really sure why. However it does deserve royal treatment, because it is GOOD. A tasty homemade green bean casserole with cheese, sour cream, corn, water chestnuts, crumbled crackers, cream of mushroom…YUM.

Everything bakes together into a crispy, creamy, cheesy, DELICIOUS casserole that everyone will devour. It’s so easy to make, so it’s perfect for busy holiday meals. I love having this on the table at Thanksgiving!
