I made this for Thanksgiving dinner and thought it was very good. My only complaint was that the sauce was too sparse so I ended up incorporating some cream of mushroom soup at the last minute to make it saucier. Other than that, all enjoyed it.
I did not care for this recipe. I'm a cook, so I am picky, but my whole family wanted the mushroom soup green bean casserole so I had hoped this would be a good substitute.
Very tasty. The bold flavor of the bacon added a kick to typically bland taste of the traditional version of green bean casserole. Of course I covered the top with Frenches brand onion crisps as well in the last few minutes of baking (gotta hoave it!).
This recipe is great for people that have allergies to wheat. Instead of thickening the "soup" mixture I made the casserole the night before and put it in the fridge. When I baked it the next day I used a lower temp. and baked it longer. This seemed to solve the problem with it being runny.This was a huge hit and I am now asked to bring it to all pot-lucks!
So I have been making this for awhile now and after this thanksgiving had to give it a review. I was trying to use fresh green beans, and although the cream of mushroom came out fabulously well, the green beans never cooked all the way and it was watery. So this time I sweated some onions and garlic in a good amount of butter, then I added the green beans and sauteed until good and done. Think canned french cut as an example. This removed a lot of the liquid. I used tongs to move the green beans from my pan to the casserole dish so that there was no excess liquid. But don't throw it away! I used it in the cream of mushroom which I made with heavy cream instead, and used a corn starch/water mixture to thicken. It came out PERFECT! And was sooo good and got plenty of compliments. :)
This was the biggest hit at my table this year. Everyone loved it! I used heavy cream and added some grated parmesan to the sauce as it simmered. It thickened perfectly. I used about half of the bacon. Added the obligitory fried onions. Soooo good.
Try mixing potato flakes into the mixture to thicken. Added a can of Cream of Mushroom but it didn't do the trick. Was way to "soupy"...
Recently made this for a luncheon at work for 46 people...WOW! It was the first thing gone....I personally have not been a fan of green bean casseroles but this remix is the best. Will be on my holiday table every year from now on! PS: followed recipe exactly
