This recipe has been in my family for as long as I can remember. We only got to have it at holidays. Now, I use it for a special go-to side dish all year long. It's made from scratch but so easy there's no reason not to.

  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onions, parsley, and mushrooms in the melted butter until the onions are translucent and the mushrooms are giving off their juices, 7 to 10 minutes. Add the flour, salt, pepper, and lemon juice; cook until the flour is slightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir the sour cream into the mixture. Mix the green beans into the mixture. Pour the green bean mixture into a 9-inch square baking dish. Sprinkle the Cheddar cheese over the mixture. Stir the crackers and melted butter together in a small bowl until evenly mixed; spread evenly over the Cheddar cheese layer.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly and brown, 20 to 30 minutes.

A couple of notes to add to my recipe that didn't come through in the published version: When you are cooking the onions parsley and mushrooms it should be a slow saute - without boiling. When you add the flour salt pepper and lemon juice just cook for a couple of minutes to take the raw taste out of the flour (not until the flour is slightly browned). Lastly for a larger group just double all ingredients and use a 13x9 pan. It may take a little longer to heat through but no other changes needed in the directions. Great for leftovers the next day - if you have any! Read More

Ohmigosh - The mushroom flavor was way to strong and the sauce not creamy at all. Read More

I gave this recipe 4 stars because it was yummy but called for WAY too much butter! The cracker crust was soggy and the butter pooled on the top of the dish. I actually used paper towels to sop up some of the pooled butter. So delicious recipe but if I make it again I will use very little butter in the topping as the crackers are already buttery and will brown without anything. Read More

This was a great change from the standard green bean casseroles I have had in the past. I added about 2 cups of mushrooms and a bit more lemon juice. Next time I am going to try fresh green beans and leave out the cheese. Yummy! Read More

This was BANG on for our family. I am not the biggest fan of "normal" Green Bean Casseroles w/ the Cream of Mushroom soup & fried onions on top so I've been wanting to find something different. And this is it! I did everything as is except for I threw in some left-over ham & didn't do so much butter for the topping. (due to previous reviews) I did a couple Tblspoons of marg & crushed cornflakes. DELISH!!! A note though... The ham took it over the top!!! BUT if you use the ham you may want to tone down the salt. We liked it but I'm sure a lot of people would have thought it was a bit salty. THANKS for this recipe!! This is one I will be making OFTEN!:) Read More

I just made this recipe as a side dish for dinner I did makesome substitutions for ingredience I did not have on hand. It was awesome and as I cut the recipe in half for two. I used fresh cooked green beans chilled in the fridge about half a pound 1/2 cup Plain Greek Yogurt 1/2 cup Panko Bread crumbs and 1/2 cup Kraft Mexican blend Cheese... Will definitely do this again for family if they will let me but try the original recipe. Read More

I like this recipe much more than the usual one with the canned onions. It's delicious and easy to adapt to what you have on hand. Read More
