"This recipe has been in my family for as long as I can remember. We only got to have it at holidays. Now, I use it for a special go-to side dish all year long. It's made from scratch but so easy there's no reason not to."

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onions, parsley, and mushrooms in the melted butter until the onions are translucent and the mushrooms are giving off their juices, 7 to 10 minutes. Add the flour, salt, pepper, and lemon juice; cook until the flour is slightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir the sour cream into the mixture. Mix the green beans into the mixture. Pour the green bean mixture into a 9-inch square baking dish. Sprinkle the Cheddar cheese over the mixture. Stir the crackers and melted butter together in a small bowl until evenly mixed; spread evenly over the Cheddar cheese layer.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly and brown, 20 to 30 minutes.

I gave this recipe 4 stars because it was yummy, but called for WAY too much butter! The cracker crust was soggy and the butter pooled on the top of the dish. I actually used paper towels to sop...

This was a great change from the standard green bean casseroles I have had in the past. I added about 2 cups of mushrooms and a bit more lemon juice. Next time I am going to try fresh green bean...

Super easy in the crockpot and the cheese made a nice thick sauce.

I have made this several times now and it is always a hit! Last Thanksgiving I substituted Peas in place of greenbeans my family now has a new holiday request.

This was BANG on for our family. I am not the biggest fan of "normal" Green Bean Casseroles w/ the Cream of Mushroom soup & fried onions on top, so I've been wanting to find something different...

EIt was wet, very wet. It never came together as a casserole.
