A wonderful dish! The recipe was easy and it was an elegant side-dish for our dinner. I especially liked the sour cream and Swiss flavors. I will be making this dish again.

I used this as a meal!! Worked very well. The only thing I would do next time is add some garlic and mushrooms.

I fixed this for Thanksgiving and it was great! I added a small can of mushrooms and a tsp. of garlic powder. The next time I make this, I will top it with a can of fried onions because the cornflakes seemed to be a tad soggy. Thanks for posting a great recipe.

This is quite special! DH and I love green beans so I am always looking for "special" recipes. Like Miss Annie, we loved the delicate swiss cheese - sour cream flavor. I made half the recipe using a 1 pound bag of defrosted, drained frozen green beans and topped the cornflakes with a bit of extra swiss cheese. Next time, I might follow Tebo's suggestion and add some fresh sliced mushrooms to the onion saute, just because I love the combo of swiss and mushrooms. Great recipe Laura!

Yummy! The only change I made is I used fresh green beans and blanched them first and omitted the sugar. These are wonderful and tasty and a great way to get my fussy DH to eat his veggies! Great recipe Laura.

Wow! My brother and his fiance loved this so much when I made it for a family gathering that they asked me to make it for their buffet at their wedding. I made two HUGE pans of it and there wasn't one green bean left. It was a tremendous hit. This is now a family staple when we have family get-togethers!!!

Wonderful!!!! This is sooo good and different from the ordinary. I did top it with fried onions because DH requested it. I also added some garlic to the sauteing shallot. I will be making this again. Thanks!

So good. I printed this recipe a while ago, but never got around to trying it until last night. I loved this recipe. We like the original "green bean casserole" but I wanted someting different. I really enjoyed this recipe. The sour cream and swiss cheese are a nice change of pace. I plan on making this many more times. Thank you Divinemom5 for sharing your recipe with us.

LOVE THIS! I was charged with bringing green bean casserole to Thanksgiving dinner. I REALLY don't like green bean casserole. I found this recipe and it was very easy and very tasty. A definite repeat!
