Green bean casserole probably has got to be one my favorite all time side dishes for the holidays...I really love the more deluxe style casseroles similar to this one instead of the traditional mushroom soup version but, I've never had it with bread or Parmesan cheese. The only thing I'd do different though, is make my own fried onions as opposed to can. I used them before too... until I saw a cooking show where they sliced their onions super thin, dredged them lightly in corn starch and fried them. I've never looked back since then!
