Jennifer's notes for this recipe:
Holidays just aren't the same without green bean casserole. My family loves the extra 'umph' the added mushrooms and cheese provide!

When I saw that Jennifer had added cheese to this traditional green bean casserole recipe I knew I had to try it! And much to my delight the cheese took it up several notches. In fact, my husband commented that it was the best green bean casserole he had ever eaten. Nice!

Love green bean casserole, but never tried it with cheese before. Guess it can't hurt! ;) Will have to give it a try.

Gave it a try and sorry to say I will not be making it again. The cheese takes away from the flavor of the onions . It just did not seem to blend well with other foods as well as I thought it was. There were a couple who enjoyed it but the majority of my family said "stick with the other recipe."
If your a cheeseaholic you'll probably like it.

I'll be trying this - my family loves cheese, but what Italian family doesn't - as far as it being too cheesey, try cutting back on the amount of cheese.

This sounds really good, but if I make it I will saute the mushrooms in butter until golden. Use frozen green beans, blanch them and lightly saute in the mushroom pan. Remove vegetables to casserole dish, add flour to butter in pan to make a roux, and add milk to make "cream of" instead of canned soup. It does sounds very tempting.
