    Kerfuffle-Upon-Wincle's Note:

    This is my friend Joe Comb's recipe -- he was a great friend and a great cook! He moved away from the Atlanta area several years ago, and I no longer know how to contact him. Wherever Joe is, I hope he is aware of Recipe Zaar -- The original recipe called for french cut green beans, but I prefer whole beans that I can actually chew! 2 1/2 - 2 3/4 pounds blanched fresh beans can be substituted!

      Tried with Thanksgiving dinner for the 1st time and it was way better than the old standby green bean casserole I grew up with. The swiss cheese and sour cream sauce was very tasty. My only misgiving is I used frozen green beans and it was a little hard to deal with trying to mix them all and get it into the baking dish. But I added on a about 7-8 additional minutes and they turned out just fine. I also used ritz crackers based on a couple other reviewer comments only because I have no other use for cornflakes; but they tasted great as a topping.

      After many years of the old standby casserole I found this a couple of years ago. Now, it is the most requested side dish for holiday dinners.

      Delicious! I had never tried a combination of green beans with cheese. The combo is very tasty!!! I sauted 1/2 onion and used buttered Ritz cracker crumbs on top since I did not have cornflakes. I may try mozzeralla cheese next time. My DH loved this dish better than the mushroom soup type. Thanks for sharing this recipe and now I have a different flavored green bean casserole to use for future meals. Prepared as a participant in the Cool Beans Event March 2010 of the Cooking Photo Forum.
