Southern Green Bean Casserole

Slightly sweet, deliciously cheesy green bean casserole.


Units Scale
  • One bag of frozen (or 2 cans French style green beans, drained)
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 small onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 pint of sour cream
  • 8 ounces Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup corn flake crumbs


  1. Grate the onion into a small bowl (or chop using a food processor) and set aside.
  2. Grate the Swiss cheese and set aside.
  3. In a small skillet, melt the butter over low heat and make a paste of the flour, sugar, salt and grated onion.
  4. Remove from heat and add the sour cream and Swiss cheese.
  5. Thaw, drain and pat dry the green beans and spread them evenly in a shallow baking dish, about 1½ quart size.
  6. Spread the paste over the green beans and cover with a thin layer of corn flake crumbs
  7. Bake at 350F degrees for about 45 minutes until hot. The casserole will be bubbly and the corn flake crumbs slightly browned.
