Just Plain Good Green Bean Bake

At our family gatherings, this is always the first dish to be completely gobbled down and gone! It must be those tangy, crunchy onion-y bits, or maybe it's the creamy, cheesy sauce that envelops Cliff's favorite veggie....Did you think you'd never again taste those yummy onions-in-a-can because you've chosen to get healthy? Well, I believe in enjoying what you love in moderation, so go for it!
