Green Bean Casserole

I almost forgot about the green beans...We usually have what my Hub calls Brenda Beans, but this recipe sounds pretty good, so I might have try something new this year...Maybe?

Brenda Beans are a quart of green beans, a stick of butter and 1/4 to 1/2 cup brown sugar. Mix all in the crock pot and cook on LOW for 4 hours (HIGH for 1 1/2 to 2 hours). Salt and Pepper to taste...I always check about the last half hour of cooking to see if it has enough brown sugar and this is how I test that...I lift the lid on the crock pot and if I smell the brown sugar, then I know I have enough...if not, I add more...I start with the 1/4 cup and go from there...

Now for the Green Bean Casserole

  • 28 oz. pkg. green beans
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 16 oz. container Alfredo cheese sauce
  • 2.5 oz. can french fried onions (divided in half)


Spray crock pot with cooking spray. Combine all ingredients except one half of the french fried onions in crock pot. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours, stirring after 1 hour. Just before serving, heat remaining french fried onions in a small skillet over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir casserole and sprinkle with crisp hot onions.

Happy Slow Cooking! Enjoy and Hugs...

Just stopping by to say hi.
Hi! Waving to Brenda ~~~~ :0)

I don't like Thanksgiving food, so I'm staying away from most of the recipes this month ;)
