String Bean Casserole

Another vintage recipe, this time for the ever popular String Bean Casserole. As usual, this recipe follows the haphazard layout of most of the recipes in this box, as if Genevieve was just taking loose notes and didn't really require anything to be written down. The idea seems to be to layer butter and garlic, then beans, then mushrooms, then cream sauce (including melted cheese), then bread crumbs and bake it all, but that's just a guess on my part.


String Bean Casserole

1 can cut string beans
Cream Sauce (see below)
1/4lb. American cheese
1 can mushroom pieces

Drain beans. Pour above over butter, garlic. Crumbs on top. Bake at 300F for 30-60 minutes.

Cream sauce:

2 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk

Cut cheese up and stir until melted.

If doubled, 3 cups of milk is plenty
