Glorious Green Bean Casserole

Glorious Green Bean Casserole

I discovered this recipe a few years back on Allrecipes.com, and have never turned back. Ry doesn’t like cream of mushroom soup at all, so didn’t like GBC at all until we tried this. I have edited it slightly to our tastes, I hope that if you try it, that you enjoy it as much as we do!

Condensed soup free, this GBC will escape the holiday menu and make it into regular dinner rotation if you let it.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cook bacon until crisp. Remove from pan and crumble/dice; set aside.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute garlic & onion until transparent; add mushrooms, continue cooking until mushrooms are soft; remove & set aside.
  4. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in flour until smooth, and cook for one minute. Stir in the salt, pepper, sugar, swiss cheese, 2 tbs butter, and sour cream. Add green beans, mushrooms, diced bacon, onion, and garlic, stir to coat.
  5. Transfer the mixture to a 2½ quart casserole dish. Spread shredded cheese over the top. In a small bowl, toss together cracker crumbs and remaining butter, and sprinkle over the cheese. Then carefully spread the cheddar french fried onions around the rim of the dish.
  6. Bake for 30 - 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is golden and cheese is bubbly.
