THELMA'S GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE

This is another old recipe from my roots in Southern Indiana. This was from one of my late mother-in-law's co-workers around fifty years ago.

2 cans French-style green beans, drained
3 tbsp melted butter
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp grated onion
1 cup sour cream
1/2 lb grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup corn flake crumbs
1 tbsp melted butter

In a medium saucepan, over low heat cook the flour with the 3 tablespoons of butter, stirring constantly until smooth and butter is thickened. Remove pan from the heat and stir in the salt, pepper, sugar, onion, and sour cream. Fold in the green beans. Pour the mixture into a greased long, flat, glass baking pan. Cover casserole with the cheese.

Combine the corn flake crumbs and the 1 tablespoon of melted butter and put over the top of the cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
