I made this dish to take to a family christmas dinner. I tried this one because I wanted something different than the traditional green bean casserole, THANKFULLY I made it for dinner the night before just to make sure it taste ok. It was dreadful I am not a mushroom fan myself but my boyfriend is and he didn't like it at all. Literally after it was tasted it was thrown in a bag sealed and in the trash. The smell was awful. I am going to just make the traditional kind to afraid to try another recipe in case it turned out like this one lol. But I do think there could be hope for this recipe. Maybe use a different kind of mushroom, regular cream of mushroom soup instead of garlic kind, and fresh/or frozen green beans instead of canned. Just try to find another recipe before you make this one there are plenty out there wish i would have chose a different one.
I don't care for almonds, but I added them anyway, because I made this for my Mother and her husband as well. Dropped this off, and 45 minutes later I get a call requesting I email the recipe. They both loved it. Really easy, and so good. A welcome change to the traditinal green bean casserole with the french fried onions. Good stuff! (But I still picked out the almonds! LOL)
