Katie Lee's has all the features of traditional green bean casserole, but everything is made from scratch instead of coming out of cans. Don't worry — her recipe is still fast and easy to make. Meanwhile, Alex Guarnaschelli adds cheff-y touches to her green bean casserole, including bacon and a garnish of fried Brussels sprouts leaves. Guarnaschelli's casserole is made completely on the stovetop, so it doesn't hog precious oven space. Your guests are going to love either one you choose.
