  4. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Sprinkle in flour, stir well, and cook for 2 minutes. Add milk and half-and half; cook, stirring constantly, until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Add cheese, Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Cajun Seasoning, brown sugar, and Slap Ya Mama Hot Cajun Seasoning; cook, stirring constantly, until cheese is melted. Remove from heat; add pimientos and bacon mixture, stirring well.
  5. In a 1½-quart baking dish, combine green beans and sauce mixture. Stir well, and spread evenly across dish. Top with french fried onions.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve immediately.
