Cheesy Green Bean Casserole

This is a family favorite Thanksgiving dish. It trumps the mushroom soup/French's onion recipe any day

1 (2 oz.) can mushrooms
1/2cup Cheese Whiz
1/2 small onion, chopped
2 cans cut green beans
1/4cup butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup milk
Dash of Tabasco
1/4 cup half & half
Slivered almonds

In skillet, saute butter, onion and mushrooms. Add the flour and whisk until smooth. Add milk, half & half and Cheese Whiz. Heat to a boil. Add the green beans (drained), salt, pepper and Tabasco (optional). Stir well. Pour into casserole dish. Top with slivered almonds. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until browned and bubbly.
