Excellent! A definite winner at our house. I too added some garlic, a can of mushroom slices and topped off with a can of french fried onions.

Was a great addition to our meal. The fried onions, sour cream and swiss cheese give it a great taste. I topped it with a few small pieces of butter and a layer of breadcrumbs over that. It was pretty and tasty. Garlic is a recommended addition.

These were really yummy, they went very fast at our early Thanksgiving dinner. Used fresh green beans instead of canned and added in some garlic as well. Used the crispy onion topping instead of flakes and really enjoyed. They were so easy I will add these into our regular dinner sides rotation instead of just for special occasions. Thanks!

We used frozen green beans, that we soften by soaking them in water for 5 minutes, they came out perfectly cooked after baking. This dish is so nice and creamy. Love the crunch of the corn flakes.

May I Have That Recipe July 15, 2014

This was tasty! I liked it better than the traditional green bean casserole with the canned soup (and I love that!) I'm allergic to onion, so I left that out and added sliced mushrooms which were the perfect addition. The Swiss cheese was a bit chewy as it doesn't melt as nicely as other cheeses but I don't think I'd change it because the flavor was excellent.

Easy to make and delicious!!! Since I did not have cornflakes, I used crushed Ritz crackers.

Yum! I made a couple of changes to suit what I had on hand. Halved the recipe, using 15 oz. frozen whole green beans which I precooked in the microwave (1/4 cup water, 3 minutes covered, then uncovered 3 minutes). Used lowfat organic sour cream and 1 cup crispy onions (from Costco) instead of corn flakes. Baked in an 11x7 dish. Really flavorful and deliciously good, and I hate that bland traditional green bean casserole. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Delicious and pretty easy. I looked for a recipe without condensed canned soup because you can't get really get it here, I do make a substitute for it sometimes but it is nicer to have something that avoids it all together. I made two changes, I added a bit of garlic powder and I used fried onions instead of cornflakes (only because I discovered my cornflakes weren't 100% peanut free and one of our guests has a peanut allergy.) I will try it again with cornflakes next time because I like them on green bean casserole. :) Thanks for sharing.

I wasn't to sure this would be the right recipie to try out when having dinner guests over, so to make sure it didn't come out to 'simple' I made it using defrosted frozen green beans and 2 cups of fresh mushrooms.
For the topping, I put the cornflakes in a plastic bag and crushed them a bit to downsize them, and then mixed in a handfuls of French fried onions - everything turned out wonderful!

Thanks for the great recipe!
