This is a delicious green bean casserole, perfect for a holiday feast or Sunday family dinner.


  • 4 cups cooked French-cut green beans, about 1 1/2 pounds frozen or 3 cans (15 oz), drained
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (6 to 8 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • Parmesan cheese, optional


Heat oven to 350°. Grease a 2-quart baking dish.

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add mushrooms and onion; saute, stirring, until mushrooms are browned and onions are tender. Stir in flour, salt, and pepper, stirring until flour is mixed into the fat. Gradually stir in the milk. Continue cooking, stirring, until slightly thickened. Stir in cheese, sour cream, and drained green beans. Spoon into the prepared baking dish. If desired, sprinkle with a few tablespoons of shredded Parmesan cheese. Combine bread crumbs and melted butter. Sprinkle over the casserole.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until bubbly and browned.
Serves 8.

Cheddar Green Bean Casserole, Member NathanKicklighter

My entire family Loves it, I love the combination of the ingredients-the ease of a healthy casserole-it is so scrumptous and easy and my granddaughter asks for it, she is the green bean queen. The cheese is really the finishing factor. It makes it so tantalizingly beautiful and tasty. I Love all of these type of vegetable casserole recipes by Diane. WE Love your web-site never,ever leave. thanks so much for being a southern cook.
