This Crockpot Green Bean Casserole Recipe tastes amazing and is so easy to make. You can make it right in the slow cooker saving you dishes and stress.
Crock Pot Green Bean Casserole
This year my goal is to make Thanksgiving as calm and stress-free as possible. I am planning on making a ton of crockpot recipes including this Crock Pot Green Bean Casserole!
One of the great things about this Slow Cooker Green Bean Casserole recipe is you can get all of the ingredients ahead of time so you are not worrying about running to the store last minute.
You can pick up some bags of frozen green beans when you find them on sale and have them ready to go for Thanksgiving.
I try and stock up my freezer in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving with all of the foods I may need. I love being able to get everything while it is on sale and not having to worry about it going bad.
The freezer has becomes my good friend during the holidays and really year-round. I freeze a little bit of everything so we can enjoy it year-round.
If you love ham and turkey this time of the year is perfect to stock up on a few. I stick them in my freezer when I can grab them on sale so I have them a few months down the road when they are back to full price.
We hope this crock pot green bean casserole recipe makes your Thanksgiving prep a little bit easier. No need to worry about the stove-top or oven with this recipe.
- Green Beans
- Cream of Mushroom Soup
- French fried onions
- Cheddar cheese
- Black Pepper
Salt to taste
Optional - parmesan cheese, garlic powder, Worcestershire Sauce
Green Beans - We used canned green beans but you can also use frozen green beans that have been thawed.
Cream of mushroom soup - If you are not a fan of mushrooms this can be made with cream of celery soup.
Crockpot - We suggest using a crockpot that has a digital timer that automatically switches the slow cooker to warm after a set amount of time. This helps make sure your dinner cooks perfectly and you don't have to stress about what time it is going to be done.
You can use pretty much any cream of soup for this recipe. I tend to stick to cream of mushroom because my husband loves the flavor. I know a lot of people who use cream of cheddar or cream of chicken soup for a different flavor.
I like to combine the Cream of Mushroom soup, milk, and pepper in a separate bowl to make sure they are well mixed together before I add them to the green beans.
Make sure to spray your slow cooker with non-stick spray to make clean up a little easier.
You can serve the Crockpot Green Bean Casserole directly from the crockpot or transfer it to a serving dish depending on how you have your Thanksgiving laid out. If you are transferring it to a serving dish I would wait to add the last half of the french fried onions so you can add them right before serving.
This recipe only takes 2.5 hours so it can be started later in the day which is great. I like being able to work my way through all of our thanksgiving crockpot recipes.
One tip is to use a notepad and list start and end times for each dish. This will help you prioritize which recipe to make 1st to last.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
