  • Made this for an early Thanksgiving and everyone loved it!! I used fresh green beans and partially cooked them first so they weren't so hard. Didn't have corn flakes so I used frosted flakes ~ didn't really taste any different since you have to toast them in a bit of butter. Loved this recipe!! - 11/21/11

  • This was much sweeter than I expected. Overall, it was good, but I'm thinking that the sugar may not even be needed. I also think that the 1.5 cups of sugar was about twice what is really needed. Just sprinkle some on top and you should be good to go. - 11/17/11

  • this was the only dish that was cleaned out on Thanksgiving. Even my teenagers loved this. I used real green beans and boiled them beforehand. - 12/23/09
