While the choice of vegetable sides and casseroles for Thanksgiving dinner are endless, one mainstay dish that is often brought by guests to Thanksgiving dinner is green bean casserole.
Perhaps the popularity in this dish lies in the fact that, after enduring some travel to the family- or friend-designated Thanksgiving dinner home, green bean casserole can be quickly reheated without tasting as though the casserole was reheated.
