Green Bean and Mozzarella Cheese Bake

Diana Rattray
This delicious green bean casserole is a nice combination of flavors. Top this casserole with buttered bread crumbs or crumbled French fried onion rings.


  • 1 large bag (22 to 24 ounces) whole green beans
  • 2 plum tomatoes, diced
  • 8 ounces shredded Mozzarella, fresh if possible
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup finely diced onion
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup buttered bread crumbs or slightly crumbled French fried onions


Butter an 11x7-inch baking dish. Heat oven to 375°.

Cook the green beans in a small amount of water until just tender. Drain and arrange in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with the diced tomatoes and shredded cheese. Set aside.

In a saucepan over medium-low heat, melt butter. Add onion and saute until tender. Stir in flour until well blended. Add the salt, pepper, cream, and sour cream. Heat through, stirring constantly. Spread the cream mixture over the green beans then sprinkle the bread crumbs or French fried onions over all. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until browned and bubbly.
Serves 6.

One to share, Member Spiffytown

This recipe has redeemed green bean casserole for me. It's no longer a bland holiday must-eat my weird aunt always makes, but a real treat that I've shared with lots of friends. They've all thanked me for it! It's easy and savory, and there are never leftovers. A plus for me is the absence of mushrooms. I use canned beans instead of frozen, great results and saves a step.
