We love green bean casserole, but find this recipe just seems to use too much milk. The sauce seems overly thin. I use somewhere between 1/3 to 1/2 cup of milk and it is just perfect; thick and creamy. I omit the soy sauce as I think this recipe is great without it and to cut down on the sodium.
It's OK. I've been doing green bean casserole for years. I love the stuff. I can fill up a plate of this and sit down to eat. I've always made my own style of it, but this year for christmas I thought I'd do this since it's so publisized. None of us liked it. I don't know exactly why, maybe it was the soy sauce or that it is watered down so much with milk. I make mine with a heavier soup and no soy sauce and real thinly sliced onions in it while it bakes.
Substitute half and half for the milk and omit the soy sauce and you have the way we make it. We were out of both once but had promised the casserole so went with the substitute and have made it that way ever since.
Not bad at all I guess for my first time trying this kind of casserole. My only complaint is that it didn't taste so good when it was reheated (and as I'm eating for one I had plenty of time to test that theory).
And old family favorite. Who ever could give this less than five stars just for nostalgia value! When I couldn't get the Campbell's soup and the French cut green beans in Europe, I substituted a packaged Cream of Mushroom soup, added sour cream and milk. One year I tried to slice frozen green beans down in to French sliced -- too time consuming and absolutely frustrating! Just used regular frozen green beans and the taste was also fabulous. Made thin-sliced homemade onion rings as well. In the end, a lot more time consuming than this easy original. I realized how very much I appreciated the ease of this great side dish for holiday meals when everything else in the kitchen is topsy-turvy from cooking.
This was a good base recipe. Sometimes it's nice just to have a few ingredients and this was a nice addition to the more complex dishes I served during Thanksgiving. Thanks for a great recipe! Will use again.
