Made it for my wife and she loved it. I used garlic salt instead of garlic powder and salt. I also used purple onions.

Today is my bonus son's birthday and I made homemade crab cakes and served this recipe as one of the side dishes. It was such a hit, it was the first thing gone on everyone's plate. Needless to say (but I will) if a side dish can top homemade crab cakes and artichokes, it is an AMAZING recipe. Thank you!

Holiday green beans

At last I can retire the classic green bean casserole from my Holliday menus. This recipe hit the mark and is much healthier and inviting.

That’s just awesome!! Thank you for sharing that with me! I'm all smiles :)

Do ahead?

Guest November 16, 2018 4:12 PM
Have you ever done this recipe ahead and then reheated it? If so, can I do it the night before without it getting soggy?

Try cooking green beans slightly less then reheat next day, the beans will cook more during reheating. And I would suggest keeping beans and mushrooms separately until reheating.

So easy and so delicious! I used fresh green beans, but only had white mushrooms on hand. Everyone loved them at Easter dinner👍
