"This is my friend Joe Comb's recipe -- he was a great friend and a great cook! He moved away from the Atlanta area several years ago, and I no longer know how to contact him. Wherever Joe is, I hope he is aware of Recipe Zaar -- The original recipe called for french cut green beans, but I prefer whole beans that I can actually chew! 2 1/2 - 2 3/4 pounds blanched fresh beans can be substituted!"

"Tried with Thanksgiving dinner for the 1st time and it was way better than the old standby green bean casserole I grew up with. The swiss cheese and sour cream sauce was very tasty. My only misgiving is I used frozen green beans and it was a little hard to deal with trying to mix them all and get it into the baking dish. But I added on a about 7-8 additional minutes and they turned out just fine. I also used ritz crackers based on a couple other reviewer comments only because I have no other use for cornflakes; but they tasted great as a topping."
"After many years of the old standby casserole I found this a couple of years ago. Now, it is the most requested side dish for holiday dinners."
"Delicious! I had never tried a combination of green beans with cheese. The combo is very tasty!!! I sauted 1/2 onion and used buttered Ritz cracker crumbs on top since I did not have cornflakes. I may try mozzeralla cheese next time. My DH loved this dish better than the mushroom soup type. Thanks for sharing this recipe and now I have a different flavored green bean casserole to use for future meals. Prepared as a participant in the Cool Beans Event March 2010 of the Cooking Photo Forum."
"We love this recipe. My husband's Aunt use to make it for years during the Holidays. I think she said it came from the Corn Flake box. I always make it for Christmas dinner."
"This makes a great variation to my normal greenbean casserole that DS's love. I really like the idea of incorporating cornflakes for the topping. I did sprinkle a bit of garlic salt to season them and then broiled for two minutes to crisp em up. I ended up using cheddar cheese instead of swiss as that's what I had on hand. The swiss would add a lovely tartness I'm sure. I omitted the onions per families request. Thanks for a sure keeper!~ Made for Spring's PAC 09~"
"Great switch for the standard green bean casserole. I made 1/6 of the recipe, using a small can of French Style green beans, light sour cream and then opted to used the crushed butter flavored crackers and onions. Thanks for sharing a new green bean recipe. Made for Stars Tag Game."
"Good dinner for me tonight. Thanks! Made for PAC spring 2012."
"Have made this many times except I use part of the melted butter (about 2 teaspoons) to mix in with cornflake crumbs."
"I loved this casserole! The reason I am giving it four stars is that I bought the french-style green beans by mistake. I used a combination of the french style and some frozen regular green beans. Next time, I will make sure to have the regular canned beans. This was a side to beef patties and gravy. Thank you for a great recipe, and it will be made again. Made for Photo Swap 8! :)"
"I have made this for soooo many years. My family wouldn't think Thanksgiving would be complete without it. We've never added the corn flakes though I'm sure they'd be yummy. I don't add all of the cheese at once to my sauce either. I add a little and then as I'm putting the green beans in the dish I layer some cheese in between the green beans. Making these in a couple of days."
