3 (14.5 ounce) cans
French cut green beans, drained
1/2 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cream of mushroom soup
ground black pepper
coarsely crushed buttery round crackers
*****Note: The recipe was supposed to say 1/2 cup of sour cream. I have asked Allrecipes to revise the recipe. Also, I use reduced fat and sodium soup when I make this up; adjust salt to suit your own personal taste. Happy Cooking! RadiatingMom/Breeze
This is way better with frozen green beans. To jazz it up a bit, I
sauteed fresh sliced mushrooms in butter with shallot, added 1 tsp. soy sauce and 1/2 tsp. dried tarragon. Used only 1/4 cup sour cream. Yep... changed the recipe quite a bit, and it sure was good!
There's a lot of green bean casserole recipes out there, but this one is head and shoulders above the others. I think it's the addition of sour cream and the buttery cracker crust (not those tired old french fried onions) that give it a little extra zip and personality. I have to admit that I did sprinkle a little shredded cheese on top before adding the cracker crust, and as a cheese addict I think it made this casserole even better. This one's going in my recipe box!
This is a great change from the traditional Green Bean Casserole. I used a whole can of mushroom soup and 1/2 cup of sour cream instead. And I also added some chopped pecans to the topping. I fixed this for Thanksgiving and loved it.
I have always liked green bean casseroles, but the salt and the fat are overwhelming to me. I used low fat, low salt cream of mushroom soup, 1/2 cup sour cream and frozen french style green beans. I ended up with the freshest tasting casserole ever! This paired well with Apple Stuffed Chicken Breasts and carrots.
I made this with our Christmas dinner and I will never go back to my old way of making green bean casserole. Take the advise of other reviewers and use less sour cream. ***ONLY USE HALF A CUP OF SOUR CREAM, even the author has posted that the recipe is printed wrong. I used canned green beans and I mixed the green beans and sauce together the night before and put it in the fridge overnight. When it was time to bake it I put the crackers on it and popped it into the oven. Delicious and easy, what more could you ask for???
I'm learning that cooking is not an exact science... Oh sure, you can't really deviate on things like baking soda and stuff like that, but most recipes are pretty forgiving of some tweaking here and there. I was so sure I had everything I needed to make this for dinner, only to come home and find I had no mushroom soup OR sour cream. I used cream of broccoli and skipped the sour cream. I topped with the buttery crackers as indicated in the recipe (I used Ritz), but added a sprinkle of some grated italian cheese I had leftover in the fridge. What can I say? It tasted great. I'm sure the sour cream would have made it better, but this worked out fine. I will try again with the ingredients specified, but it got me thinking - you could probably do a "broccoli casserole", with frozen broccoli, condensed broccoli soup, and the other ingredients here. Maybe I'll try that...
One of my favorite recipes from this site! Always a winner and I make this for Thnksgvng. I do reduce the sour cream a bit & use the whole can of cr. of mushroom. Also add a can of corn to this. I LIKE canned Campbell's soups (they are comfort food to me) so I really, really enjoy this recipe. I can understand, though, if you don't like canned soups/sour cream combinations you probably wouldn't like this recipe. (: All to taste, and here's to comfort food!
