• Growing up we had this side dish at many holidays.  It's one of those dishes that is so easy you start to wonder why you only have it on special occasions!*  I love it with ham because I think ham and Swiss cheese are MFEO.
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • dash of grated nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated onion
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 4 cups drained cooked and well drained frozen green beans, French cut
  • 1/2 lb Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups corn flakes
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • Melt the two tablespoons of butter over low heat and saute' the grated onion until fragrant.  Add the salt, pepper, nutmeg, and sugar.  Stir to combine.  Gradually add the sour cream, mixing until smooth.  Add in the drained green beans and the Swiss cheese.  Combine all well and pour into a buttered casserole.  Mix cornflakes with the melted butter and sprinkle over the top.  I am the first to experiment with alternate toppings, and I'm sure Durkee fried onions would be lovely on this, but I have to say that the crispy, buttery corn flakes are it for me.  Anyway, cover and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, uncovering for the last five.
  • *I've never added meat to this casserole, but I think it would be an interesting way to use up leftover chicken or ham.  It would be like a variation on Chicken Divan.

    I'm also curious that when there are dishes that are so easy to make and taste so good but have it only for a special occasions. This gives me an idea that if you can make it, do it even if you don't have any special occasions. It's a matter of how you want it on your table. Thanks for the tips and for the recipe. I feel so glad that I realized something about this blog and hope that every person who'll read will also feel the same.

    I like the blog to be honest because I am really looking for new recipes that I can actually cook at home. It's just that, I think your blog will be more effective it you put some pictures of the dish that you are talking about for imagination purposes. Nevertheless, your blog is informative because you even included the ingredients of the dish, and based on your instructions, I think this is just an easy to cook dish.
