"Great recipe. We loved it! Instead of chili sauce (didn't have any on hand) I used sriracha and it was wonderful."

"I make this each Thanksgiving and often through the year as well. A great change from the traditional green bean casserole."

"Made this yesterday for an early Thanksgiving celebration. Was easy to prepare ahead, and went into the oven while the turkey was resting. Was very popular with our guests. Even hubby (green beans not his favorite) ate 2 helpings. I made it exactly as directed, but next time will double the recipe!"

"So much better than the "classic" version. Made it for a Thanksgiving gathering and the office Christmas party - no leftovers and rave reviews. Will definitely be making this again!"
