MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 30, 2013

I got rave reviews from all on this dish. I did add some seasoning salt to the creamy mixture to boost the seasoning. I used a bag of fresh cut green beans. I also used the almonds and french fried onions for the topping. I even pre cooked the beans the day before and then assembled and baked the next day. A keeper!

MY REVIEW

I read the reviews before I started cooking and made some adjustments based on them. I added salt to the beans while they were cooking but several people commented it needed more salt. I will add salt to the creamy mushroom mixture next time. I tripled the amount of dried onion and thought it could have used a little more. This recipe was more work than the traditional green bean casserole I've always made, but I liked this one better and besides the salt comments, it got good reviews by my family and in-laws this Thanksgiving.

What is with people who have not tried the recipe, but gve only one star saying, "We don't do sour cream. We don't like the taste or the fat and calories." You are supposed to rate the recipe after you've made it, NOT the ingredients! duh!

MY REVIEW

Very bland version of the traditional green bean casserole. It definitely lack salt and pepper. I cooked my beans in a salted water bath as I normally do and it helped, but the cream base needs help too. I also quadrupled the amount of dried onion and I think it could even use a bit more. Probably not going to work this recipe again. However, the swiss cheese was a nice touch.
