    You have hit it out of "The Park"with this recipe! Outstanding taste and very easy. I used fresh Haricots Verts from Sam's Club and steamed them for 3 min. on high in a steaming bag. Perfect. Since I was feeding 16 I used both bags. (2 lbs) but did not change any of the other ingredients. I did add some Kosher salt. They were sooo good even before baking, that I realy think they do not need the baking. Thanks for my new favorite company recipe.

    This was a little too rich for our tastes. I even used low fat parmesan and turkey bacon. I felt like the other ingredients overwhelmed my fresh green beans. Made for 2009 Fall PAC.

    Excellent to be green beans, they are not one of my favorite foods, but we have a ton of them canned in our basement and I have to eat them. But these could almost make me like them. Thanks for the recipe.

    Very good. This would be a great substitute to the Green Bean Casserole that everyone serves at Thanksgiving. My family won't eat that but DH really liked this. Easy, looks nice and tastes good too! Thanks for posting. I'll be making this one again.


I love to cook! I enjoy trying new recipes, tweaking recipes, and creating my own original recipes. Born and raised on a farm, I began learning how to cook since I was very small. I am a HUGE animal lover! I have a beautiful Dalmatian named Rock, who is my baby and a very good boy. He brings me so much joy!
