OK so the picture was taken when there was only a bit left in the pan......sorry! Next time I make this (or anyone!) post a different picture. I liked this recipe because it isn't your typical cream of mushroom and canned bean casserole! Much better this way!
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/4 cup onion, diced small
1 cup sour cream
2-3 lbs fresh green beans (can use fresh-frozen if needed-no canned beans!)
1/2 can French's fried onions
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 package Ritz crackers, crushed
4 Tbsp butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Wash and prepare green beans. Steam for about 5 min. until soft but crunchy still.
In a large skillet/sauce pan over medium heat, melt 2 Tbsp butter. Stir in flour until smooth. Stir in the salt, sugar, and onions, cooking for a couple mins. Add sour cream and cook til mixed and smooth.
Add green beans to sour cream mixture and stir to coat.
Transfer green bean mixture to 9x13 baking dish. Spread cheese over top.
Mix the crushed crackers with the butter and sprinkle over the top of the cheese. Finish by topping French's fried onions over casserole.
Bake for 30 min, until it is bubbly and golden! Enjoy!
