This is not your mama's green bean casserole, but she'll still be raving about it! After trying many variations, I decided to give this old standby extra kick. The crunchy texture, cheesy goodness and bacon make it a hit. —Scott Rugh, Portland, Oregon

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 28, 2012

"While I liked the idea of the crock pot, I had some trouble with soupiness and the cheese. I had to thicken mine by removing the lid of the slow cooker during the last half hour of cooking....which I then had an issue with the cheese not melting correctly. I won't blame the recipe...just some of the mechanics of it. I thought it tasted really nice though...and I omitted the water chestnuts (not a fan) and added more bacon and onions as well. Very tastey and made great left overs!!"

"I made this recipe for Thanksgiving and my family really loved it. I did make a few changes. I cut the water chestnuts into strips to make it easier to pick up with the beans. I also added 3 extra strips of bacon cuz we all love bacon. I added soy sauce for more flavor and I bought the bigger can of onions and crumbled 2 or 3 handfulls into the beans when I added the cheese. I cooked it for 6 hours. The beans came out nice and tender. There wasn't any left. I'm gonna make it for Chrstmas Eve too."
