Made this for Canadian Thanksgiving (last month), and it was a huge hit with the entire family, although, as usual, it seems to take me a long time to caramelize the onions. Love listening to Chef John, and have made or saved a lot of his recipes.

Chef John, Your videos make cooking seem fun and takes the edge off what seems like a chore for a mommy in the kitchen. I come to this website to get fresh ideas because my poor husband would starve if I didn't. :) Thank you, I will definitely try some of your recipe's. Not only this one.

This is the first recipe I tried online that really tasted good and was easy to make, especially for a non-cooker or for someone who really can't cook.

This looks amazing and I look forward to trying it. My sister in law brought a green bean casserole to Christmas dinner and while I appreciated her effot, I found I couldn't even eat my portion. The beans were canned. So I want to try this one with the fresh beans.
