    ~Nimz~'s Note:

    This is one of my adopted recipes. Made these last week and all I can say is EXCELLENT. Easy to make and is just busting with flavor. I highly recommend making the bread crumbs as written. They are wonderful. My cooking time was a little different, but we like our beans a little more done than most. Thanks to the Original Author of this great recipe.

      Enjoyed this very much, easily prepared (in fact my daughter made them while I was busy with the mushroom risotto that was our main dish). Our sauce was quite thick and we used garlic and herb stock rather than chicken stock. Really really nice and definitely making it again! Thank you Nimz! Made for PRMR tag game.

      I~LOVE~YOUR~BEANS! Well, they weren't exactly YOUR beans, but the recipe is & I'm with the other reviewers in saying that this bean dish beats other bean casseroles every which way! I did my usual thing & substituted good ol' lemon pepper for the S&P, but other than that, the recipe was followed & the outcome was WONDERFUL! Thanks for a great keeper!
