This is one of my all time favourite foods. A family recipe passed down from my Grandma to my mom to me. Now it is also one of Dave's favourites as well.
Serves 6 to 10
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 small onion, finely diced
1 cup sour cream
1 16 ounce bag frozen green beans, defrosted, or fresh beans, cut and blanched
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1 cup bread crumbs or panko
1 tablespoon butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
In a large bowl, stir the flour into the melted butter. Add in the salt, sugar and sour cream. Stir to combine.
Add the onion and green beans. Toss until well coated. Transfer to a casserole dish, a shallow rectangular dish works best.
Spread the cheese over top of the bean mixture.
In a small bowl, toss the bread crumbs in the remaining tablespoon of melted butter. Sprinkle the bread crumbs over the cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown.
