Absolutely Delicious Green Bean Casserole From Scratch
- Complexity: very easy
What makes it such a winning recipe? For one, it's unique, doing away with both the mushroom soup and the fried onions that are standard procedure in so many green bean casseroles. The crispy crust comes from crunchy butter-crackers!
Step by Step Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
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.
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.
Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is golden and cheese is bubbly.
