This recipe is the best! I still use canned green beans and use roasted garlic cream of mushroom plus add bacon bits but the soy sauce really adds a little something to the flavor that makes it so much better than the traditional recipes. Can't wait to make this again for Thanksgiving this year.

This is one of the classic Thanksgiving dishes that I am asked to bring every year. Trouble is, it never gets eaten (not that I am a bad cook. I just haven't found THE GB Casserole) WELL, I think this one it is. I used evaporated milk instead of reg. milk... everything is good with evap. milk (and bacon, but that is another story). Great taste and easy to make. And since it isn't a very large amount, no leftovers due to massive amounts! Thanks for the recipe! Jennifer

A classic. My mom always added a 5oz. can of water chestnuts (drained) and a generous sprinkling of dried oregano. I used the roasted garlic mushroom soup last time and that was very good in it. It's definitely worth springing for Campbell's soup, I think; get it on sale during Thanksgiving week and stock up! ;)

Thanx, mandabears, for posting this classic holiday recipe. Your tips regarding frozen green bean substitutions are helpful. I like to use @ 4 cups frozen haricot verts (French Green Beans- buy at Trader Joe's) and dress mine up with the addition of chopped fresh parsley, minced fresh lemon zest, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice before baking.

Very good! Although I've never been a fan of the usual green bean casserole recipe,but this one is better because of the frozen green beans. Tastes fresher with frozen than the canned, thanks!

This is a classic recipe. Sometimes I add some shredded Cheddar cheese and mushroms before adding the fried onions on top. My family enjoy it both ways

The sauce was good, but the consistency of the green beans was weird -- neither crunchy nor soft and kind of chemical tasting. I'll probably use the sauce recipe again, but sub out canned beans.
