I hope you are spending time with your loved ones this holiday!
(Also, if you happen to be going Black Friday shopping be nice to the baristas, sales associates, police, and so on. No one likes rude & pushy people - do you want to end up with decaf in your coffee...I think not.) - Just a word of caution is all.
BUT ON TO THE RECIPE!
So, I got this recipe also from MidCenturyMenu.com
Her site is just a marvelous collection of odd recipes!
So on the left hand side is what I have grown up eating. The Green Bean Casserole with the can of mushroom soup, green beans, and fried onions. If you want that recipe, it is on the back of the fried onion box! :-)
On the ride hand side is the Sour Cream Green Bean Casserole
- 3 T butter
- 2 T flour
- 1 t salt
- ½ t pepper
- 1 t sugar
- ½ t grated onion (I subbed onion powder)((I subbed garlic powder))
- 1 cup dairy sour cream
- 2 (12 oz) pkgs French-style frozen green beans
- ½ lb grated sharp cheese
- ½ cup corn flakes
Combine flour, butter and cook gently. Remove from heat, stir in seasonings and cream. Cook beans until tender; drain. Fold in cream mixture, place in shallow 1 qt casserole and cover with cheese and then cornflake crumbs mixed with 1 T butter.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serves 6
Now as I mentioned in the video (it's up on the youtubes!) the sour cream version looked a little clumpy, but the actual mouth feel was very light & airy. Taste wise though, I just couldn't wrap my head around that sour after taste. Don't get me wrong I LOVE sour cream. Put it on a baked potato, put it in a taco, I am a fan! This, though, not so much.
I'm going to stick to the green bean casserole I grew up with! Nom nom nom.
Once again, Happy Thanksgiving!
