Recipe by Mama_Jennie

This is my absolute favorite version of green bean casserole. I've brought this to many potlucks and I am always asked for the recipe. My mushroom-phobic DH even loves this dish!

Wonderful change from the normal green bean casserole. I liked the addition of the cheese, as well as the sauted onions and fresh mushrooms. I cheated as it was just me eating this today, so I just cooked it all in fry pan that I could then put in the oven. Thanks for another great recipe Mama Jennie.
