Grandma's Cheesy Green Beans

This side dish has been at every holiday meal as long as I can remember; it wouldn't be right without it. We prefer this bean casserole over the typical one with cream of mushroom soup. The almonds are great for a little crunch but we usually top ours with the fried onions. This year I made it a day ahead of time and threw it in the crockpot to heat; this saves space in the oven during holiday meals.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix butter, onion, flour, ground mustard, salt, pepper and milk.
  2. Boil until thickened.
  3. Add cheddar cheese and stir until melted.
  4. Add drained green beans.
  5. Pour into casserole dish and sprinkle with slivered almonds.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  7. If you want to use the fried onions, sprinkle them on top for the last 10 minutes of baking time.

These are excellent. I used fresh green beans. I blanched them in boiling water for 2 minutes then set them aside. Thanks for the recipe. :)

These were really good! I used frozen green beans. I didn't have the fried onions, but I'm sure that would be great on it! :) Thank you for sharing!
