Reviews for Celebration Green Beans
"I have made this for the past 2 Thanksgivings. We all love it!"
"This is a wonderful twist on the traditional green bean casserole. We used Pepperidge Farm seasoned bread crumbs and added 1 Tbsp of melted butter to them (omitted the saute onion step). Add 1 cup Parmesean and 1 cup bread crumbs for a more substantial topping. Topping was crispy and full of flavor. If you don't have a steamer basket, place beans, onions and garlic in glass dish and microwave on high for 6 minutes and then transfer to baking dish. Also, we used EVOO instead of canola. Dish was a hit on Thanksgiving! Everyone asked for the recipe, including the husbands."
"This is fantastic. The beans are crisp and not mushy and have a tangy flavor. Thanks!"
"We are having these for dinner tonight with Jagerschnitzel and German bread dumplings. The beans smell so good! Can't wait to try them!"
