    This was good. However, it was a lot of work for what it turned out to be.

    I thought this was amazing, but then again, I haven't ever had traditional green bean casserole. I also made the following changes to make it easier: used dry thyme instead of fresh, used Burgundy wine instead of Madeira, and used sliced baby bellas (8 oz). Our family loved it!

    I really liked the idea of taking the basics of a traditional green bean casserole but using fresh ingredients instead of canned soup and canned beans. We made this for dinner last week as a practice and it was great so we will be having it for Thanksgiving. I also subbed the mushrooms for sliced baby bella. The only problem is unless I'm crazy the measurements seem to be off. 1 1/2 cups of green beans was nowhere near enough, 3 cups of onion was way too much, and even 16 oz of mushrooms was a tad on the heavy side, and at the same time it didn't seem quite "saucy" enough, so the second time I made it I used a little more wine and chicken broth.

    Made this for dinner tonight. I didn't have Madeira so used dry sherry and the supermarket didn't have shitake mushrooms so I subbed sliced baby bellas, otherwise I made it as the recipe suggested. We enjoyed it, and it will be making an appearance on our Thanksgiving table this year.

    A nice alternative to the traditional green bean casserole!

    I'm not a big fan of green bean casserole but we really liked this version and will be serving it on Thanksgiving. I found Shitake mushrooms but also used dry sherry-I'll buy some Madeira for Thanksgiving. Easy to make as well!

    Would not make again as written, not flavorful. True, beans need to cook longer if you do not like them "al dente".

    This recipe turned out so bad. I don't care for crunchy beans and I should have cooked the beans longer. The other ingredients clumped up and tasted terrible. Even my opossum wouldn't eat it.
