Christmas in July Blog Hop Party!

This has been an awesome week of sharing Christmas ideas! 

I'm going to share a recipe that I always take to Christmas dinner at my in-laws.  Actually, I always take it to Thanksgiving dinner and Easter dinner, too.  :)

It's Green Bean Casserole, Swiss Style

2 cans or 4 cups of green beans (I use french style if I use canned)
1/2 pound swiss cheese, grated
2 T butter
2 T flour
1/2 tsp onion, grated (I just dump in a bunch of dried minced onions - easy peasy)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 cup cornflakes, crushed
2 T butter, melted

Place green beans in a casserole and sprinkle with cheese.


In a saucepan, melt 2 T butter and blend in flour.  Add onion, salt, pepper, sugar, and sour cream.  Cook slowly for a few minutes, stirring constantly.

Pour over beans and cheese.  (I just stir everything together - once again, easy peasy)

Sprinkle top with crushed cornflakes and melted butter.

Bake at 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.  Serves 8.  (No way!  Not in my family!)

I love this.  Not only is it good, but it's easy to make and I usually have everything on hand except maybe the swiss cheese and sour cream. 

I'm STILL using my Tupperware cereal storage after all of these years and I love it.   This is about the only recipe I use cornflakes for and it keeps them fresh forever.

Oh, and I would have loved to have had a picture of the finished casserole all tasty looking and ready on a plate... however, that was not happening in my family!  They had dug into it before I ever had a chance to way whoa!  Sorry!!
