    Wonderful change from the normal green bean casserole. I liked the addition of the cheese, as well as the sauted onions and fresh mushrooms. I cheated as it was just me eating this today, so I just cooked it all in fry pan that I could then put in the oven. Thanks for another great recipe Mama Jennie.

    This was a hit in my house too. Served it at a picnic this weekend and brought home an empty dish.

    This one was a winner with us! DH and I both love green bean casserole, but this has got to be the best we've ever had! It is all the better than the traditional kind, from using the ham, cheese, and fresh mushrooms and onions! This is the only way I'll ever make green bean casserole from now on!! DH has raved and raved!!

    Great recipe!! I made this to go along with a turkey thigh I made in the slow cooker. The only things I did differently was to add a packet of soy sauce and only used about a 1/2 cup of cheese, instead of cups. I will definitely be making this again. Thank you for posting!
