Outstanding green bean recipe! This 1st time around I followed your recipe right on down & thoroughly enjoyed it! Still, another time I might just sub crushed multi-grain crackers for the cornflakes, just because we are very partial to that particular kind of cracker! Thanks for a great new way to fix these green buggers! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe tag]

I loved this! DS, on the other hand, tried to pick the celery out of it. Instead of crushed cornflakes, I used crushed ritz crackers, just a personal preference. I much prefer this green bean casserole to the one with the french fried onions. Made for 123 Hits!

Great alternative to green bean cassorle. I made this as written with 2 changes, I left out the celery due to DS and didn't have the cornflakes, so just left off the topping and therefore didn't add a photo due to the no topping. I especially liked the addition of the seasoned salt, versus plain salt. I made 1/3 of the recipe for just the two of us. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for PRMR.
