This Green Bean and Sour Cream Casserole is a must-have on most Thanksgiving tables.

Easy Thanksgiving Recipes for Your Holiday Feast 

 “The green bean casserole” was invented in 1955 by Campbell Soup Co. and was typical 1950s American food. The green bean casserole recipe was so wildly popular that the dish is now a must-have on most Thanksgiving tables. For a nice change, the following casserole is delicious, and you can even sprinkle those French-fried onions on top if you wish! (But it doesn’t need them.) 

Green Bean and Sour Cream Casserole

1 medium sweet yellow onion, thinly sliced
1⁄2 cup butter, divided
2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen green beans, thawed and drained
1 cup sour cream
1⁄4 cup flour
1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
1⁄4 teaspoon white pepper
4 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup soft bread crumbs 

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 112-quart casserole; set aside. 

Saute onion in 14 cup butter. Combine onion, beans, sour cream, flour and seasonings. Pour into prepared casserole and sprinkle with cheese. 

Melt remaining margarine; add bread crumbs, tossing to coat. 

Sprinkle bread crumbs over casserole and bake 25 minutes. Yields 4 to 6 servings.
