Green Bean Casserole

Crock Pot Gourmet for the Frantic Chef #3

The ingredients are simple:

1 can cream of mushroom soup

2 lbs. frozen cut green beans

2 c. french fried onions (divided)


Pour the frozen green beans into your crock pot. (I used my 3-quart crock pot for this recipe. You could always double the recipe for a larger crock pot.)


Add the can of cream of mushroom soup, and stir. (Many recipes for green bean casserole call for added milk as well. This is totally unnecessary when cooking the casserole in a crock pot, since the moisture tends to stay in the food with crock pot cooking, instead of evaporating as it does in the oven. The moisture already in the green beans is plenty. However, if you prefer a thinner sauce to your green bean casserole, you may add 1/4c. or so of milk.)


Stir in 1 c. of the fried onions. Mix well.


Top with remaining 1 c. of fried onions. Cook on low heat for approximately 4 hours (although it doesn't hurt if you forget about the casserole and leave it cooking longer).


Serve with your favorite turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, etc.!
