Recipe: Green Bean Casserole I

We cut the recipe in half and used fresh green beans. I picked the beans this morning, threw them into a pot of boiling water and cooked them five minutes. Bonus? We have bean water, also known as vegetable stock, for next week's cooking. Waste not want not.


2 lbs French style green beans, cooked or canned, drained
3 Tbsp butter
2 heaping Tbsp flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
4 tsp grated onion
8 oz sour cream
6-8 oz shredded Swiss cheese
Small can French fried onion rings OR buttered corn flakes (for topping)

Preheat oven to 350o. Spread green beans in a lightly greased casserole. Melt butter in a saucepan and stir in flour to make a smooth roux. Stir in salt and sugar, and stir to make a paste. Remove from heat, and stir in grated onion, sour cream, and cheese, then spoon mixture into beans and spread evenly. Top with French fried onion rings or buttered corn flakes, and bake 20-30 minutes.
