French-style green beans, drained
cornflakes cereal, crushed
Fantastic! What a really nice twist to green beans. I did make modifications to the recipe. I used 2 bags of frozen green beans becuase I like the taste better than canned. Also, I added 1 samll minced onion to the sour cream paste. I also added bacon to the green beans... and salt! I used fried onions to top it. Make sure that you get a good swiss cheese so that you can taste the flavor. It was a little soggy the next day but the flavor was even better!
I really didn't care for it and neither did my fiance. It was so rich with sour cream, swiss cheese and tons of butter (let me say that again, too much butter). We thought it was too heavy. I won't be making this again. If I could give this no stars at all I would do it.
I've made this recipe for over twenty years with a few changes. I use frozen, french cut grean beans cooked al dente, and add 3 Tbls. sauteed, minced onion and 1/2 to 1 lb. cooked, broken bacon pieces into casserole. I've never tried the cornflake crust; I'll try it this Thanksgiving! (*Once you take this to a dinner, you'll be expected to bring it every time!) YUMMY :-)'
First, let me say that the end result of this recipe was very good. My husband loved it. The preparation was a little strange, though. The "paste" mixture was very thick, and the melted cheese made it even thicker. I tasted this mixture before adding the green beans and thought it was a little bland, so I fried some bacon very crisp and crumbled this in with the green beans. This seemed to spice it up a little. Like I said, the final dish was good, although VERY different from your traditional green bean casserole.
These were the best grren beans I ever ate. My husband even liked them and he doesn't eat green beans. We have made it several times for guest and it is always a hit, Thanks Tim!!
This has been our family favorite for over 30 years. Melt the butter in a saucepan and add in flour, 2 tsp.salt, 1 tsp. pepper, 1 tsp. instant minced onion and 2 tsp. sugar. I use cut green beans, not the stringy french. I don't melt the Swiss cheese into the green bean mixture but layer it on top. Spread this in a 9x13 pan. For the topping I only use 1 cup of cornflake crumbs with 1/2 cup butter. Just sprinkle over the top for a light coating.
Interesting twist on a holiday standard. I'd opt for a little less sour cream though, as it was almost too tangy.
Fantastic!!!!! Very rich!!!!
