The holidays can be super hectic and when it comes to Thanksgiving Dinner there are so many different requests for side dishes.

We combined two of our family favorites into one great side dish. On top of our Green Beans Casserole we added a layer of Yummy Mashed Potatoes. Not only does this recipe save room on the table, the kids just gobbled it up. Green Bean Casserole with Mashed Potato Topping Recipe is waiting to be a showcase plate on your dinner table.

  2. Oh yes yes yes! My kids love Green bean casserole. love the addition of adding potatoes

  3. Wow, Maria! Two of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes together. I would not have thought to combine these two but I’m going to give it a try this year. Yummy!
    P.S. I’m on my way to enter the Idaho contest now. I’d love to go!

  4. Now that’s some comfort food right there. I can see everyone in the house here asking for seconds.

  5. The idea of combining mashed potatoes with green bean casserole is brilliant! We are all about the side dishes on Thanksgiving too!

  6. Thanks for this recipe. I might just need to make this and bring to my mom on Thanksgiving.

  7. I am absolutely thinking about Thanksgiving already and this side dish is perfect! I love combining the two for one even better side! Yummy!

  8. Being a Brit, I’ve never experienced Thanksgiving but it is so something I would love to do one day. I must say, of all the side dishes I’ve seen (like that sweet potato marshmallow thang!) this truly looks superb and something I would really love to eat 😀 I’ll definitely be trying this one 😀

  9. Love green bean casserole and love mashed potatoes but never thought to mix the two together!
    Will have to pin this for when the kids get a little older. They aren’t a big fan of food “touching” and this would qualify. Ha ha!!

  10. This would be a big hit in my house. We love green beans and mashed potatoes. What a great way to put the two together.
