The Other Greenbean Casserole


This is so good!  After trying this, I knew I would be making this instead of the old green bean casserole.  I was truly not expecting to like it as much as I did.  I made this last year for Thanksgiving and my family absolutely loved it!  I made it again for Christmas and again it was a big hit.  If you are not crazy about the mushroom soup and French fried onion version, then this is the casserole for you!


When I first made this I thought surely there was a mistake in the ingredients.  It calls for a lot of sour cream.  I was sceptical to use this much.  But trust me, in the end, with all the other ingredients it turns out great.  I hope you will give this a try and enjoy it as much as my family does.

Merry Christmas to all my friends over at Fiesta Friday!! 🙂


The Other Greenbean Casserole

By:  Arl’s World
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup onion, diced
1 cup sour cream
 3 (14.5 ounce) cans French style green beans, drained
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
8 oz velveeta cheese
1/2 cup crumbled buttery round crackers
1 tablespoon butter, melted
 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 greased casserole dish.  Heat velveeta cheese and pour over the top.  Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top of velveeta cheese. 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.

  1. Sometimes, when I also feel that there’s something wrong with the ingredients, I follow my instincts which leads me to less-taste food. I guess I gotta trust next time. 😀 This looks really delicious, Arl. Thank you for bringing this at FF table. Have a wonderful weekend. 🙂


    1. Sometimes our instincts are correct though Jhuls. I don ‘t know how many times I have messed something up feeling that the recipe didn’t sound right but following it anyway to have it not come out. But this one was spot on. 🙂
