Fresh Green Bean Casserole

This green bean casserole recipe features fresh green beans, baked in a luscious creamy sauce, and crowned with crunchy, golden-brown onions. Made without mushroom soup or bacon, it comes together quickly and with minimal effort.

Begin by preheating the oven to 370F. Then, melt the butter and add all-purpose flour whisking continuously for 2 minutes.

Next, pour in the milk and use a spatula or whisk to stir the sauce thoroughly, ensuring there are no lumps. Add salt, and spices, and blend well.

Combine green beans, 2/3 cup of grated cheddar, and most of the fried onion (reserving 3 tablespoons) in a mixing bowl.

Pour the prepared sauce over the bean mixture and gently mix using a spatula.

Transfer the mixture to a baking dish approximately 12*12 inches in size. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven.

After the initial bake, sprinkle the remaining cheese and crispy onions on top of the casserole, then bake for an additional 10 minutes until the top is golden brown.

Once done, allow to rest for 10-15 minutes and serve the hot casserole by slicing it into pieces and enjoy!
