Made this for a Christmas dinner side- the onion soup mix was overwhelming and very salty. I would not make this recipe again.

Hi Jules211, this was a great way to prepare green beans! I added 1 onion (as we like the taste), increased the amt of mushrooms and added a clove of garlic - don't you just hate people who do that to your recipe? Anyhow, I mixed the onion dip and sour cream before I sauteed the onion mixture, this way it would give the flavors a chance to marry. I used a combination of Parmesan and Gruyere cheese and they turned out fantastic! They were creamy and just wonderful. Thank you for posting, Diane :=)

I thought these were pretty good, but they tasted way too "oniony" for my husband, so I probaby wont be making them again.
