Makeover Corn 'n' Green Bean Bake Recipe

The result of our makeover is a delicious, creamy, cheesy casserole perfect for any night of the year.

"Whenever I make this,I cook it in the microwave uncovered for 10 minutes. This way it frees up my regular oven for the turkey or rolls. Been doing this for years. Comes out just fine..I'm sorry, I meant the original green bean casserole without the corn or sour cream. Sorry."

"Even this makeover recipe is too rich. I made this today for Thanksgiving in place of green bean casserole. That was a mistake, we couldn't eat it. I made it exactly per recipe, cooked it for 45 min, and it was nice & bubbly. However, the onions peppers and corn were way undercooked. I won't be making this again, but if you want to try it I would recommend cooking the onions, peppers & celery first in saute pan until tender. Also, I did not like the frozen corn, too tough. I would also substitute canned corn (the summer crisp). Maybe decrease the amount of sour cream also."

"I never made things with 'Butter favored crackers' but finally I read people use Ritz Crackers! Haven't made this yet but I printed it up."

"What kind of flavored crakers do you use?"

"To make this even lighter, what about sprinkling cracker crumbs, then spraying them with the no-calorie butter spray? I think it will be worth a try, and it's not a change written in stone. If it doesn't work as well, then back to the original instructions."
