Garlic Green Beans with Gorgonzola
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 3 hours
The first time I made this I followed the recipe exactly and it was barely edible. The second time I did it, I switched it up. Chicken broth to replace the wine. minus the bacon to make it vegetarian, Feta cheese to replace gorgonzola, half the recommended amount of Thyme, and cooked on high for 3.5 hours (and the beans were still kind of crunchy) I also added the sour cream halfway through instead of right before serving and I added 1/2 cup parmesan cheese. This made it much, much better. Actually pretty good.But the original recipe is pretty awful. Sorry to say that, but it's true.
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.
