For people who hate the store bought cream soups that have MSG and a ton of sodium in them, this green bean casserole does not have that in it. I substituted sour cream. It still has a wonderful flavor and very easy to fix.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 3 (14 1/2 ounce) cans French style green beans or 3 (14 1/2 ounce) cans cut green beans, drained
- 2 1⁄2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 (6 1/2 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, reserving liquid
- 1 (2 7/8 ounce) can French fried onion rings
