Thanksgiving 2006: Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

This is a tried and true family recipe. Once you make this dish, you’ll never want to go back to the traditional canned version again!


INGREDIENTS:

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon white sugar
1/4 cup onion, diced
3/4 cup sour cream
3 (14.5 ounce) cans French style green beans, drained
2 cups shredded Mild Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup crumbled buttery round crackers
1 tablespoon butter, melted

INSTRUCTIONS:

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.
