Green Beans Supreme

"This is "yet another" alternative to the traditional green bean casserole with cream of "something" soups. But with the sour cream and cheese, it is still creamy. This recipe originally came from the cookbook "Candlelight and Wisteria" from the Lee-Scott Academy. It was originally submitted by Thelma Wilson"

  1. Although we do enjoy green beans, I haven't yet found a frozen green bean that I liked, so I switched to the fresh stuff & steamed 'em, then followed the recipe from there on! And, although my other half loves creamed anything, while I could do without it, these beans were absolutely delicious! Definitely a recipe worth keeping around! Thanks for sharing it!

  2. I really liked these tangy green beans. I also didn't add the lemon rind but added lemon juice. I will be making these again. I get sick of the same ole green bean recipes and will be adding this one to the keep file. Thanks
  3. Yum!!! loved it :) Will make again and not just at Thanksgiving.
  4. The taste is great and it's not difficult to make. I did run into one problem but I'm assuming that it was my fault. When it came time to brown the top I put it at what I thought was 8 inched from the heat but it had burned black in 2 mins. Get out the ruler if you need to but be sure that it's a full 8 inches away. That said, I used French cut beans, half the ask for butter and fat free sour cream with reduced fat mozzarella for the cheese. After removing the topping the beans were delicious.
  5. Great switch from the normal green bean casserole!! I used a can of drained french style green beans, so I cut the other ingredients in half. I chose to use parmesan cheese and then for the topping I went with butter flavored cracker crumbs, yummy!!! I served it with pork steak and potatoes!! Made for Potluck tag!!
