Cheesy Crockpot Green Bean Casserole – This green bean casserole recipe is everyone’s favorite holiday side dish made even easier in the Crockpot! Full of either fresh, frozen, or canned green beans, cream of mushroom soup, french fried onions and cheese this casserole is an easy crowd pleaser!
It’s definitely safe to say that green bean casserole is my favorite side dish at Thanksgiving and Christmas. If I could get away with it, I’d pass on the turkey and steal the whole casserole for myself! Well, and maybe some of these Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes too.
We all know that green bean casserole is already impossibly easy to make. Why not make it even more simple, save some space in the oven, and add it to the slow cooker? If you’re someone with a big family and a GIANT turkey, you know you need that extra oven room!
So, I have tested this recipe out a few different ways and I am happy to say that you can use whatever type of green beans you prefer! Fresh, frozen, or canned work out perfectly. I typically use canned because that’s just what I always have on hand for busy nights when I don’t have time to prep fresh veggies for dinner.
Now, let’s talk about the cheese! Adding cheese to my green bean casserole was an experiment that I tried many moons ago and now I prefer the addition. I add parmesan and cheddar to this recipe and it’s a glorious combination that sends the casserole to a heavenly level of creamy goodness.
If you aren’t into creamy or cheesy-ness then please feel free to leave the cheese out! You can add one cheese, both, or none, and it won’t affect the outcome of the recipe at all!
Another quick thing to talk about is the french fried onions. I always add half of the can right into the green bean mixture in the Crockpot. I like the onion flavor all throughout! If you want all of the onions to be crispy, then just wait and add the whole can on top before you’re ready to serve.
