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.
My, family and I love this green bean recipe. When I first made them I liked them so much I made them like 4 days in a row!
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!

This was a really good alternative to traditional casserole. Maybe I did something wrong but the sauce for the beans came off kind of bland. The toasted bread crumbs(I used Progresso Panko Italian) were a great addition. I think next time I will omit the flour and stick with butter, seasonsings, cheese and crumbs. Thanks for the inspiration.
Delicious green beans!!! I didn't wait for the holiday, made these last night to serve along with meatloaf and a potato casserole. My two kids won't eat the "normal" green bean casserole, so this is an awesome dish that they both ate with no complaints. I just loved the crispy buttery topping!!! Thanks Nimz for sharing.

This was a real winner at the Easter dinner I hosted this year. I agree that this is a much better recipe for green beans than the traditional casserole. I will definitely be making this again!
YUM! Looks and tastes fancy without any effort. Definitely a keeper!
Wonderful green bean recipe, thank you Nimz! I used a can of plain bread crumbs and ran out of parmesan cheese for the topping but it was still very tasty. Instead of fresh green beans I used a 29 oz can of cut green beans. Made the sauce with the butter, garlic, flour, and red pepper. Slowly added the chicken broth to get a thicker sauce, added the green beans, the chicken broth and simmered covered for about 4 minutes and than uncovered to get my sauce to thicken completely. The lemon juice is a nice flavor to add and the topping is so good. These green beans will be replacing the traditional green bean casserole we always have on Thanksgiving! Thanks again Cathy!
This is a delicious way to prepare fresh green beans. The directions are well written and very easy to follow. Made these exactly as written and will make again without changing a thing.
I will never cook green beans any other way. It took more effort than usual, but so worth it. I put extra lemon juice....yummy!!
