This was a nice simple recipe. Made as written and the kids loved the fact that their was onions in it. Great cheese flavor. Just enough. Made for 1-2-3 hits.

I'm not a fan of the traditional green bean casserole, so I was happy to give this a try. I'm glad I did. It's very easy to make and it's delicious. I made this as written, but just mixed half of the cheese right into the casserole and sprinkled the other half on top as directed. It was great that way. My siur cream was reduced-fat and the recipe came out successfully. Thanx for sharing!
