Delicious - my dinner guests last night loved it! But whoops - I used all 5 T. butter in the sauce and none in the topping. Didn't even realize it until just now :-) Other (purposeful) modifications included: fresh green beans partially cooked and shocked, just breadcrumbs on top of grated cheese, and only 1/2 t. sugar. Will definitely make again, and again, and again...



I enjoyed this because it was a new and interesting way of making green beans, however, they seemed to be missing something. Not one of my favorites.

I rated this as I did because I make adjustments to the recipe. I can't remember when I didn't make this caserole. I make a few changes though. I make it in a 9 x 13 glass pan and I double the sour cream topping. I don't double beans though. Make sure you use french cut canned grean beans. Makes a WORLD of difference!!!
