I was looking for a dish without the "cream of" soup and this was absolutely delicious! Everyone raved! I did replace the canned beans for fresh(steam for 5 minutes first to soften before adding to recipe) I also replaced the onion with mushrooms because I wanted to put french fried onions on top so it would be more like a traditional Thanksgiving dish. This recipe will definitely be part of our holiday tradition. Read More

I opted to try a variation on the tried and true green bean casserole printed on the Durkee fried onion canister. Nobody ate these. Too much stuffing needed more flavor. I guess I'm used to the old cream of mushroom soup. Oh well I tried... Read More

I made this recipe to bring to my sister's house for Christmas dinner this week. Everyone loved it and asked me to make it again for next year. I changed a couple of things: I decreased the sugar by half and also decreased the onion by about a third. I added some ground black pepper a little garlic and I used Stove Top stuffing instead of homemade. I might try homemade stuffing next year. I used frozen green beans that I thawed and drained. I didn't find them to be too crunchy at all but I hate canned vegetables so maybe that's why. Read More

My family really disliked the traditional green bean casserole recipe so I tried this recipe last year as an alternative. They loved this version and it was the only item that there weren't any leftovers for. This year I am doubling the recipe to make sure we get leftovers.:) Read More

Much better than the traditional green bean casserole. I made this both at the holidays and when my family was in town visiting and everyone that has tried it loves it. I also thought that the beans were a little crunchy for my taste but my family wouldn't change it. Read More
