I updated this green bean holiday side dish by adding a touch of white wine, fresh thyme and green onions. It's delicious, easy to make and my family loves it!—Nancy Heishman, Las Vegas, Nevada

"I know that this probably sounds hateful and I'm sorry about that, but this was probably the worst tasting green bean casserole I ever made. It wasn't even edible. The flavors just did not blend together. The reciple said to cook on low, but halfway through I had to switch to high because the beans were still hard. I think that sticking with the first five ingredients and going heavier on the bacon and onion would have been enough. I did use chicken broth instead of the white wine but I don't think that it would have made any difference."
