I was going to make our "traditional" green bean casserole for Easter when I found this and decided to try it instead. (I was putting my life in my own hands). Everyone LOVED it, Shelli!!! The cheddar cheese soup was a nice variation to an old favorite. Thanks so much for sharing.

I decided to try this for our Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone just loved it! It was a very nice change from he ordinary green bean bake. I did add some of the French-fried onions into it before baking and then more on top at the end.

This was wonderful, not a crumb left! I had many comments on how much better this was than the usual. It was very easy to make.
