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)

Preparation:

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 ;)
