Once you try Green Bean Supreme, I seriously doubt you will ever go back to cream of mushroom again. The original recipe came from the 1972 edition of the Better Homes and Gardens Casserole Cookbook. My mom got it as a wedding gift in 1974 and over the years she has made this recipe her own, tweaking it into the creamy, cheesy goodness that it is today. Thanks Mom!
