Slow Cooker Green Bean Casserole

Crock Pot Green Bean Casserole

Most recipes call for canned or frozen green beans but we prefer to use fresh green beans. {You know Bob… everything fresh.} I was able to grab some green beans by price matching them for $.89 a pound, which was over $1 a pound savings.

I love the smell of onions and garlic cooking {who doesn’t… right} so this dish started off on the right foot for me. My mixture was a little dry so I added an extra pat of butter so keep some nearby if yours does too.

So now we have onions and garlic in my concoction and now we are adding sour cream. OH MY! I love sour cream dishes. Forget the low fat stuff as sometimes you just need that full flavor.

I popped the lid off to see this crusty concoction that smelled amazing! Bob walked by and said “Wow, that was made in a Crock Pot!?” {He’s not a fan of Crock Pot cooking… silly man!}

The final result was tasty tasty tasty. This green bean recipe is a for sure do over with the ease of processes {and of course the cost to make}. My daughter said this was by far her favorite recipe and she’s a tough food critic.

    The Crockpot green bean casserole sounded amazing so I bought the ingredients to make it. After I started reading the directions and following it, I realized they never mentioned the mushrooms after the ingredients or the cheddar cheese. At what stage of this recipe are they incorporated?????

    The recipe doesn’t say how much garlic to use. Also do you add the other half of the french fried onions at the end? Made for Thanksgiving without the Panko breadcrumbs and it turned out great!

    Being a novice to slow cooker cooking, I was unclear as to whether or not when all the ingredients were added they were stirred together? Or do you just put in the bread crumbs, cheeses, etc, on the top without stirring? Also, is the total time expected about 4 hours? And one more thing… Do the fried onions remain crisp or get soggy? Trying to decide whether to make this version or my standard oven version. Thanks for your help!!

      I layered everything and let gravity run it’s course — from what I remember this one had some onions that melded into the dish and the top ones were crunchy. My Crock Pot took about 4 hours but know yours as some cook faster depending if oval vs round for the depth of layers.

      Make yours and then a 1/2 version of this to see for next time?

      Have a good one!!

    I made this for Thanksgiving and we are making it again for Christmas. So easy and yes, it did free up an oven for other dishes. THANKS!
