Thanks for the information - that's what I call a 'string bean'! Now I know.

What's the difference between french style green beans and the regular pre-cut frozen green beans you get at the supermarket?

French style are beans cut in thin long strips instead of the short thick pre-cut.

When do you add the thawed green beans?

I would assume they would be first into the casserole, if things are added in order.
