Title: Alpine green beans
Categories: Vegetables, Side dishes
Yield: 4 Servings
1 lb Green beans; trimmed
3 tb Butter
1/2 c Onion; finely diced
1 c Sour cream
1/4 ts White pepper
Salt; to taste
2 c Grated Gruyere or other
1/4 c Bread crumbs
1. Preheat oven to 350º. French cut beans by cutting them in half
lengthwise, running the knife down the flat part between the seams of
the bean. If the beans are long, cut them at an angle into lengths of
about 2 inches. Steam until crisply tender, from 3 to 5 minutes. When
cooked through, but still slightly crunchy, remove from the steamer.
2. In large skillet, melt 2 tbs of the butter and add the onion. Cook
until translucent. Stir in the sour, pepper and the green beans. Add
salt to taste. Mix to coat all ingredients and turn off heat.
3. Spread mixture into a lightly greased casserole. Layer the cheese
over it. Top with bread crumbs, and dot with the remaining butter.
(At this point the dish can be baked immediately or refrigerated for
24 hours; bring to room temperature before cooking.)
4. Bake for 25 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the sauce
bubbly. Serve hot or warm.
