This was one of my Grandma's traditional Thanksgiving dinner dishes - and apparently it's a favorite here on CookEatShare as well! I think the pearl onions really set it apart from the typical green bean casserole. Another variation which has recently been suggested to me is to sprinkle shredded cheese on top before adding the french-fried onions. I'm going to give that one a whirl this year.

    I like the addition of the pearl onions in this recipe. Coupled with the French-fied onions it gives the dish a real onion punch. Since I have all of the ingredients on hand I will definitely give this one a try. Thanks for sharing!
