Cheesy Baked French Cut Green Beans


1 (48 oz.) package French Cut Green Beans, thawed

6 Tbsp. butter

1 small onion, chopped finely

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup flour

2 cups milk

3/4 cup sour cream

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. black pepper

4 cups (16 oz. Bag) Kraft Shredded Sharp Cheddar Natural Cheese, divided

1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs, regular or panko


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In a large stockpot, melt your butter over medium heat and quickly saute your onion and garlic while stirring being careful not to burn.

Whisk in your flour until no lumps remain, then slowly add your milk and sour cream.

Season with a little salt and pepper, stir.

Stir well until the sauce is smooth and slightly bubbling on the sides of the pan.

Add 3 cups of the cheese and stir well.

Turn off the heat and continue stirring until the cheese is melted and you have a nice, thick sauce.

Add your thawed green beans to the cheese mixture and stir well to coat.

Pour your cheesy green bean mixture into a lightly greased 9×13 baking dish and top with the remaining 1 cup of cheese.

Sprinkle 1/2 cup of seasoned breadcrumbs on top.

I sometimes spray a touch of non stick cooking spray on top of the breadcrumbs to help it brown up.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until it’s golden brown on top and bubbly.

If it’s not as golden as you’d like on top, turn your broiler on medium for 5 minutes and that will do the trick!

Let sit for 10 minutes.

Serve warm as a side dish with your favorite entrees.

Serves 12 generously.
