3-4 Cups of Cleaned and Cut Green Beans
1 Teaspoon of Garlic
2 Tablespoon Butter
1 Tablespoon of Sun Dried Tomato Oil
4 Sun Dried Tomatoes
2 tablespoon flour
2 cups milk
1/4 Teaspoon of Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
Pinch of Lawrys Season Salt
Pinch of Nutmeg
Pinch of Red Pepper Flakes
1/2 Cup of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
2 1/2 Cup French Fried Onion
15 Ritz Crackers
Start by trimming the green beans and cutting them on an angle into 2-3 pieces.
After you are done trimming the beans, add them in a pot with 1 1/2 cups of water and close the lid on the pot. This will steam the green beans.
Steam for 3-5 minutes and then drain them. The beans will still be pretty raw but will continue to cook later on. After draining them, add them back in the same pot and add the 1 tablespoon of butter and the garlic. Cook on medium heat for about 2 minutes.
Add the flour and stir to combine. Cook for 2 minutes and make sure you don't see any more white spots from the flour.
Then add in your milk and seasonings. Stir until the milk is smooth and has no lumps from the flour. Cook on medium low for 6 minutes, this stage will allow the sauce to thicken and furthermore cook the green beans.
Grate in some sharp yellow cheese and stir into the beans to add some depth of flavor and silkiness. Finally stir in 1 cup of the french fried onions.
Set aside the green bean mixture and grab a round baking dish and the ritz crackers. Crush the crackers with your hands and line in a uniform layer the crumbs on the bottom of the dish.
Pour in the green bean mixture on top of the crust and smooth out with spatula. Then top with the remaining onions.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
