A different version of a popular favorite. (At least, I didn't see it in a fairly thorough search through the Recipezaar.) I don't know the original source of the recipe, but it's been in our family for over forty years. A bit more expensive, perhaps, and a bit more complicated to prepare, but worth every cent and every minute!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- 2Melt the butter in a sauce pan, then stir in the flour until mixture is smooth. Don't brown the sauce.
- 3Open cans of beans and drain, preserving the liquid.
- 4Spread beans across bottom of a lasagna pan or baking dish of your choice. (Should be an oven-to-table dish.).
- 5Over low-to-medium heat, slowly add the liquid from the beans to the white sauce, stopping when you have a medium gravy thickness. You probably won 't use all the bean juice.
- 6Spoon the cheese spread into the liquid, stirring until it has melted.
- 7Pour the combined sauce over the green beans.
- 8Put the beans in the oven. Allow to bake for 15 or 20 minutes, then add the onion rings as a topping. (Don't add them at the beginning of the baking; they'll get too brown!).
- 9Bake for another 10 minutes or so. (Timing is not critical because the beans are already "cooked." You're only heating them up.).
- 10Remove from oven and serve hot!
- 11Be prepared to make a bigger batch next time. :).
