READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by KerfuffleUponWincle

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.
