Step By Step  

There's no need to hang out by the oven all day. Whip up this holiday favorite using the slow cooker!

As prepared by The Food in my Beard,

Enjoy green bean casserole with a few shortcuts – but the same classic taste!

Green bean casserole has been a holiday side dish staple for years and years, but suddenly in this modern age of cooking it has become a little controversial. Most of the controversy comes from using the most common shortcut, cream of mushroom soup. 

I set out to make a from scratch version that took some unique shortcuts but was still homemade. You can take this green bean casserole to your next holiday party and be really proud of the dish – but also not have to spend hours over the stove.

The main time-consuming step of this dish is browning the onions. Honestly though, green bean casserole is not green bean casserole without them so it’s an essential step. Once the onion is brown, add in the mushrooms and toss just to soften.

The super shortcut that makes this casserole thick and not watery is whisking some potato flakes into the cream and stock mixture.

To serve, top with onion straws and just stick a spoon right into the slow cooker! 

Creamy and savory, with a little crunch. The beans still have some texture as well. Tastes like holidays!
