    Lalalauren's Note:

    My Granny used to make this for every holiday, now my Mom does too! When I was younger I used to throw a fit if my Momma didn't make it! I get such a craving for this I could eat the whole pan. I like to think of this as more of an "Adult" version of the simple Campbell's and French's we're all used too. I sometimes like to add a dash of the paprika to the cream cheese soup mixture just for a little extra flavor. Enjoy!

    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 (9 ounce) packages frozen French style green beans

    • 1 (10 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
    • 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
    • 1 small onion, finely chopped (somewhere between a 1/4 to 1/3c, however much onion flavor you like)
    • 1 tablespoon flour
    • 1 (8 ounce) can sliced water chestnuts, drained
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt (you can also use fresh garlic to taste and add to the onions)
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
    • 1 (2 1/2 ounce) package slivered almonds
    • paprika

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook green beans according to package directions; drain.

      Melt margarine in a Dutch oven over medium to medium low heat; add onion and cook until translucent.
    3. 3
      Add flour and stir to coat.
    4. 4
      Add soup and cream cheese. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until cream cheese is melted, add Cheddar cheese and stir until mixture is smooth and everything is melted.
    5. 5
      Remove from heat; stir in green beans, water chestnuts, garlic salt, and pepper.
    6. 6
      Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 2 quart casserole.

      Absolutely delicious. I was a little nervous about adding the cream cheese, but it added such flavor and creaminess. Thank you for my new holiday favorite side dish.
