The recipe would be fine as is, but it's superb if you saute onions in butter first. When I make this recipe, I use fresh green beans from my farmer's market. I steam them first, using chicken broth instead of plain water. While they are steaming, I cook the onions in butter until transluscent, then add the flour, sugar, salt & pepper, cook 1 minute, then turn off heat. Then add sour cream and 1/2 the cheese in the saute pan. Pour this mixture over the beans in the casserole dish, add the other 1/2 cheese, then the crackers & butter. I could eat the whole thing myself, it's so delicious.
