Green bean casserole is one of one of the best regions of Thanksgiving dinner, and honestly one of the many only ways I love to eat green beans! Haha. I opted to still use the french fried onions with this recipe, but For certain i will have an option for homemade breaded and baked onion strings.

Prep Time 10 min
Cook Time 30 min
Total Time 40 min


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onions
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cans (28 oz each) French style green beans, drained well
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar or Colby Jack cheese
  • 1 cup French’s fried onions


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 baking dish, or similar casserole dish, with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Once melted, add the flour, salt, sugar, and pepper. Stir with a whisk for 1 minute. Stir constantly so it does not burn.
  3. Take off the heat and add sour cream, and dried minced onion. Stir together until combined.
  4. Add green beans, half the cheese, and half the fried onions. Stir together and pour into prepared baking dish. Top with the remaining cheese and sprinkle with the remaining fried onions.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes.


  • If wanted, you can use 1 tablespoon of diced fresh onion. I prefer the dried minced onion because it’s easy and you don’t waste an onion for only 1 tablespoon!
  • To make this easy to prepare: measure out your dry ingredients (flour, salt, sugar, pepper) into a small bowl. That way when it’s time to add them you just dump & stir.
  • In place of the two larger cans of green beans, you may use 4 of the standard size (15 oz) cans of green beans.
