Turkey Day Recipes: Green Bean (Casserole)

Chris asked me to make this.  Up until the day before Thanksgiving, I thought it was the traditional green bean casserole. Admittedly, I didn’t know what was in that except beans, some kind of mushroom soup and those fried onion things.

As it turns out, his requested dish, recipe provided by mom, is not green bean casserole but Christmas Green Beans. And here is the recipe:


3 cans green beans
8 oz sour cream
2 tbsp butter
1 1/2 tbsp finely chopped onion
1 tbsp flour
1 tbsp sugar
1/8 tsp pepper


  • Put beans in a greased 2 qt casserole dish (8x)
  • Saute onion in butter in saute pan
  • Add flour, sugar, pepper and sour cream to onions; stir til boils
  • Remove from heat and pour over beans
  • Cover beans with swiss cheese
  • Bake 20-25 minutes at 350°, until cheese is melted and turning golden brown
