“This recipe is much better than the standard mushroom soup and French fried onion version.”

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in flour until smooth, and cook for one minute. Stir in the salt, sugar, onion, and sour cream. Add green beans, and stir to coat.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish. Spread shredded cheese over the top. In a small bowl, toss together cracker crumbs and remaining butter, and sprinkle over the cheese.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is golden and cheese is bubbly.

I am not too big on veggies, but I CRAVE this dish!!! First, FRESH, steamed grean beans are key! I reduce the sour cream to 3/4c as others have suggested, reduce the salt to 1/2 tsp, add black pepper, and 1&1/2 tsp garlic powder with the salt & sugar. I use a large can of french fried onions and mix 1/4-1/2 can into beans, the rest I crush with the cracker topping and extra melted butter. I add extra cheese (like most cheesy recipes I use), and mix some into the beans. This can be mixed together ahead of time then thrown in the oven 30 minutes before serving.



I tried this recipe twice. The first time I made it as printed. The onions were crunchy and raw, it was salty, and the flour made it too thick. I tried it again, incorporating suggestions from previous reviewers. I sauteed the onion in the butter until tender and translucent, and I reduced the salt and the flour by half, and added half of the cheese into the beans mixture. It was much better the 2nd time!



I LOVED this and so did my entire family. Just perfect, thank you! To a previous reviewer (Rose): Shame on you for leaving such a low rating after changing almost the entire recipe. Raters like you drive me crazy.
