Jazzed-Up Green Bean Casserole
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 5-1/2 hours
My mom used to put water chestnuts in her green bean casserole. Very yummy. I did opt to bake it because I like the onions on the top very crunchy.
Excellent upgrade to the typical green bean casserole. It's easy to make, also have made on the stovetop but it is a great go-to slow cooker recipe for a crowd or just for family dinner night. Hearty, full of flavor and yummy!
The old recipe from the 1960's had bacon in it and adding the Worcester sauce gave it the taste that was missing in one of the reviews.
We loved this departure from your typical green bean casserole. I baked it in the oven because I was short on time, but love that it's a slow cooker recipe and will try it that way next time. I omitted the water chestnuts because I didn't have any on hand, but everything else remained the same. Delish!!
The only changes I made were omitting the Water chestnuts, (because I don’t like them) and adding a little soy sauce and butter. It only took half the time, so luckily I checked early and caught before they got overcooked. I suggest checking beans before recommended cooking time, (especially the first time, since I have found that Slow Cookers vary), and making a note of time and which Cooker you used. That being said, I love these Green Beans. Easy and crazy flavorful. I will definitely be making again.
I loved the flavor of this dish. I think next time I will omit the milk. It was a little too soupy for my liking. Only thing I changed was I added a little diced onion to bacon at the end of cooking time. Will make again.Was a nice change from your typical "Green Bean Casserole" that we usually have at Thanksgiving.
Way too much liquid. I tried to make this recipe several times with minor changes, and no matter what, it came out too soupy. Will not make this again.
Great recipe! I give it only 4 stars because I realized, after making this in the crockpot, that this combination of ingredients doesn't mix and set properly when cooked this way. It just tasted unfinished and like something was missing. I baked leftovers and they are scrumptious!!! Will make this again and again, just will make sure I bake as a casserole rather than in the crockpot.
Nice and easy way to make green bean casserole. The crock pot tends to make things a bit soupy so I reduced the amount of milk. I eliminated the water chestnuts because my family does not care for them. This is a great holiday side that will free up space in your oven.
While I liked the idea of the crock pot, I had some trouble with soupiness and the cheese. I had to thicken mine by removing the lid of the slow cooker during the last half hour of cooking....which I then had an issue with the cheese not melting correctly. I won't blame the recipe...just some of the mechanics of it. I thought it tasted really nice though...and I omitted the water chestnuts (not a fan) and added more bacon and onions as well. Very tastey and made great left overs!!
