This tasty Slow Cooker Green Bean Casserole has no canned soup and it’s delicious whether you use the Casserole Crock Slow Cooker or a large oval slow cooker! If you need more oven space for Thanksgiving, this is the perfect solution.
It’s Thanksgiving week, and I’m going to spotlight just a few more Thanksgiving ideas before I take some time off for the holiday! Green bean casserole is definitely a Thanksgiving classic, and I was so excited when I first spotted this no-canned-soup Slow Cooker Green Bean Casserole from Slow Cooker Gourmet. Jennifer made it in the Casserole Crock Slow Cooker! but if you don’t have that fun slow cooker that’s shaped like a casserole dish you can also make this tasty side dish in a large oval slow cooker.
This recipe uses fried onions in a can, which are most definitely not the type of “from-scratch” ingredient we like to focus on around here, but Thanksgiving only comes once a year so if you like fried onions on your green bean casserole, you have my blessing. You could also top it with something like slivered almonds or melted cheese if you wanted a less-processed, lower-carb option. I love everything about this recipe; hope some of you guys will enjoy trying it!
