A Slight Mod on the Classic Green Bean Casserole
This recipe only has a slight modification from the classic yumminess of French's Recipe. Instead of regular milk, I used evaporated milk. Not because their recipe needed improvement...because those of us that love this classic know it doesn't need that.
Regular milk is a gamble in the slow cooker. I don't know the science behind it. It just doesn't work out through a long cooking process always. Now me personally, I've always had great results with regular milk when I make this Crockpot Potato Soup, but not with many other recipes. It can separate and make a meal that is usually delish, look (and sometimes taste) rather gross.
So I decided to give evaporated milk a shot...and it was a huge success! So if you need to free up some oven space, give it a shot...and Rock that Crock!
Step-by-Step Crock Pot Green Bean Casserole Recipe
The crockpot version is just as easy as the classic!
- Open your green beans and if you're using canned ones, drain them
- Toss all your ingredients in the slow cooker (excluding half the fried onions)
- Mix well and top with the remaining onions
- Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours
I've not tried this recipe on high yet, so I don't know if it will work as quite as well. Let me know if you try it, I'd love to know...and I'll update this recipe once I give it a shot too 🙂
