Every month, a few blogger friends and I get together for the Creative Hop. We all make a fun themed recipe or craft. This month’s theme is Thanksgiving. Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just a little over a month away?!!? Where does the time go? Anyway, when I think of Thanksgiving food, I think of Green Bean Casserole. We all make it, right? Well this year, I am making my Green Bean Casserole in the Slow Cooker! It gets to cook all day while I work on the harder to cook food and it leaves my house smelling like Thanksgiving, all day long. There are several ways to make Green Bean Casserole in the Slow Cooker… this is the way that I make it. I hope you enjoy it!
First, you need to gather all of your ingredients. You will need some green beans ( you can used fresh, canned or frozen). I used 4 cans of cut green beans for this recipe. You will also need a can of cream of mushroom soup, a half of a cup of milk, some french fried onions and some salt and pepper to taste. You can also add a few things to this recipe of you feel it is too boring. You could add some herbs or maybe some mushrooms. It is all up to you, the cook! You know what your family loves!
Next, you will take all of the ingredients and put them in the slow cooker. You will save a little bit of the french fried onions for later, though. Put the ingredients in the Slow Cooker and mix it all up. Then put the setting on High and let it cook for about 4 hours. I stir mine occasionally, about once or twice an hour. After the four hours is over, put the remaining french fried onions on top and let it sit on the Keep Warm setting for about a half an hour or so.
That is it! Your creation is finished. You house smells yummy and you have an excellent side dish to serve your family on Thanksgiving!
