Popejoy Family Green Bean Casserole

by Sandra Popejoy
This is a holiday must at our house. We never have a holiday or family celebration without this dish. Rich, yes, but oh so good. My mother-in-law gave this recipe to me about 40 years ago. Once you eat this luscious casserole, you will never again want the old-style green beans with mushroom soup and onion straws!

  • 2 cans Blue Lake green beans, drained
  • 6 slices of bacon, chopped
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese  

To prepare:
Cook bacon until crisp. Saute onion until soft. Mix all ingredients together. Salt and pepper to taste. Bake at 350 degrees until hot and bubbly, or about 30 minutes.
