  • Fry bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels, crumble, and set aside. Drain most of the bacon grease from the pan, and place over medium heat. Add the onions and bell pepper; cook and stir until tender. Stir in the wine, scraping all of the bits of bacon from the bottom of the pan.

  • Mix in the butter, milk, soup, and soy sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the green beans and bacon until evenly coated. Fold in cheese, then transfer to a 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with French fried onions.

  • Bake uncovered for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until heated through, and sauce is bubbly.

I thought the red pepper taste was a little overwhelming and the mozzarella cheese was unnoticed and therefore probably unnecessary. Read More

The only thing I changed was the amounts of milk and cream of mushroom. My family doesn't like the "gooy" texture. So I used the same ingredients just enough to make a sauce Man these were the best green beans ever!!!! Everyone raved over the taste!! Thanks you made green beans a HIT! Read More

Very good, I doubled the recipe for Thanksgiving and it was totally wiped out! The only change that I might make in the future is to cut down on the soy sauce or to use lite soy sauce. The flavor of the soy seemed to be a little overbearing, but still tasty! Read More

This is very good I did make my own cream soup/sauce and added lightly sauteed chopped fresh mushrooms to the sauce. I also used fresh green beans but frozen are fine too. Read More

I'm a pretty tough reviewer and have lately found flops here but this recipe turns that around!! I'll never make another green bean casserole than this one again -- and liked it so well I'll probably make it for several parties. WOW! Neither I nor my family could believe that GB casserole could be so easy and deliecious. Used 2 drained cans of french cut beans went with vermouth didn't add any salt and didn't measure fried onions. Also used about 2:1 chopped onions to red peppers. Next time I may throw fresh shrooms into the saute too but just 'cause I love them not need them. AWSOME RECIPE!!! Thanks for it! Read More

Thanks Andy! This recipe is fantastic and a great twist on an old standby. Everyone at Thanksgiving raved about it. I'll definitely use it for Christmas too especially because it looks so festive with the green beans and red bell peppers. Read More
