  • 1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (or use 1 teaspoon dried)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided

Cook fresh cut beans until just crisp-tender, or cook frozen beans according to package directions; drain. Cook onion and parsley in 2 tablespoons of butter until onion is tender. Blend in flour, lemon peel, salt, and pepper. Add milk; cook until thickened and bubbly, stirring constantly. Stir hot mixture into sour cream and cooked beans; heat until sauce begins to bubble. Spoon into a 1- to 1 1/2-quart casserole; sprinkle cheese over the top. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter; toss with bread crumbs and sprinkle over cheese. Broil about five inches from broiler until cheese melts and crumbs brown, about 1 to 2 minutes.

Great Take on a Traditional Favorite, Member JennyOndioline

I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit. I substituted the canned ""French fried onions"" for the bread crumbs and they added a nice flavor. I might possibly try this one with a tiny bit more milk than stated in the recipe, but overall it was a real winner.
