I made this recipe for Thanksgiving for my family of 15, it was very easy to make and smelled delicious, however, the final product got poor reviews, very bland compared to everything else on the table. Sorry, but it was a unanimous vote not to make this again.


I made this instead of the traditional green bean casserrole on Thanksgiving. They were pretty good, but not terrific.


This was a very good recipe. I tried making it a few times a couple different ways and the best way is as follows. First cook the oil, sugar, and onion on LOW heat. Get it started on med-high, but once the onions start sizzling turn it down to low and stir every once in a while. Second I added a splash of balsamic vinegar (maybe a teaspoon at most). Third I cooked the beans in the microwave first, then threw them in the onion mix and cooked for an additional 5 minutes or so. Hope this helps!
