This is another recipe from my great Aunt Irma.... When I found this in my recipe box and prepared it for my family, they couldn't believe how good it was. It is a weird combination of ingredients, but it really tastes good.

I thought I would give this a try for a different green bean casserole for Thanksgiving. I am glad I did! Outstanding!

I'm here to tell you this recipe converts wonderfully to a lower fat version. I used low fat sour cream, 2% velveeta, Healthy Request cream of mushroom soup and omitted the butter and crackers. It was so good, I was eating it for breakfast the next day! Thanks SherryBeth. This one's definitely going into my favs book.

Bless great aunt Irma! Made this for Thanksgiving dinner and it was a hit. Imagine string beans getting raves. I added a few slices of crisp bacon and it is a definite keeper. Thanks Sherrybeth for such a change!
