Green Bean Cobbler, AKA "the other green bean casserole"

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

This green bean casserole is very good and a perfect way to enjoy those green beans put away in the freezer from last years garden. Of course, it is just as delicious with green beans bought from the grocery store. It is also nothing like the more famous holiday green bean casserole, this one is not too salty or processed, it is fresh and delicious! 

Green beans, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and a crunchy topping, what is not to like? The author suggests that this casserole is made with either garlic or onions. And I think she is correct, both might overpower the sour cream covering the green beans. This first time I will make it with garlic and the next time will be with onions.....

350-degree oven

1 pound green beans
water and salt for cooking

1 T butter (2 T butter for the onion version)
2 - 3 cloves garlic minced OR 1 small onion minced
1 c sour cream
3 T flour
salt and pepper to taste
1 c shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 c fresh bread crumbs (1/3 c dry bread crumbs can be substituted)
garlic salt

Place green beans in a mediums size pan, add water and a dash of salt, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and cook gently until just tender. Do Not Over Cook.  Drain well and set aside.

While the green beans are cooking, saute the garlic OR onion in the butter, when done set aside.  

Green bean cobbler, fresh and delicious.

Combine sour cream, flour and salt, and pepper to taste. Spoon over the green beans and stir together gently. 

Add the garlic (or onion) to the green beans, stir in the sour cream mixture. Place the green beans into a 2 qt. casserole, cover with the grated cheese and then the breadcrumbs. 

Lightly sprinkle the bread crumbs with a touch of garlic salt. 

Bake 25 minutes or until the top is brown and the sour cream mixture is bubbly.

  1. Cobbler! It is the perfect name for this, even though I generally think sweets. I think we should reclaim cobblers for savory foods like this! Thanks for sharing on the Waste Less Wednesday Blog Hop!

  2. Ha! I too was thinking dessert with green beans? Sounds like a yummy winter-weather dish

    1. I have made both versions, and this is a great green bean recipe to have around. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Oh my sons would love this dish, I'm pinning it.

  4. This would be a fun thing to try as I have had the other green bean casserole before and I always thought that there should certainly be a way to make it a bit healthier. This looks like just the recipe for it!

    1. This is really tasty, I am thinking a few mushrooms at holidays would be perfect!

  5. Hi Melynda,
