    Malarkey Test's Note:

    classic thanksgiving dish, this replaces the heavy in fat cream of mushroom soup version. Ok, this is my recipe. I made it for Thanksgiving 2002 and I was also extremely disappointed. I originally got it from Cooking Light, and made it a few years ago. I loved it back then, but this year it just didn't work. Not sure what is wrong...

      I know that I did something wrong! The flavor was there but it was too "Gooey". Firstly I used fresh frenched beans instead of frozen. I think this took away some of the added moisture that would thin the cheese/onion sauce. I'll try again!
