Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

adapted from allrecipes

This is so much better than the traditional green bean casserole recipe!!

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 cup onion, diced
1 cup sour cream
1 can mushroom soup
3 (14.5 ounce) cans French style green beans, drained (I have always had a huge can from Sam's and did whatever looked like the right amount)
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
French’s Fried Onions - the more the better!

Preheat oven to 350
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in flour until smooth, and cook for one minute. Stir in the salt, sugar, onion, sour cream, and soup. Add green beans, and stir to coat.
Transfer the mixture to a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish. Spread shredded cheese over the top. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is golden and cheese is bubbly. During the last 5 minutes, sprinkle desired amount of Fried Onions over cheese and bake.
