How to make Crock pot Green Bean Casserole:

Tips for crock pot green bean casserole:
- If you’re not a cream of mushroom soup fan, switch it out for cream of chicken soup.
- Since this is a crockpot recipe, it does have a little longer cooking time than traditional green bean casserole. Keep that in mind when you’re planning out your dishes. I like to go ahead an prep and get this green bean casserole going first thing. If needed, you can always switch it to warm.
- You can use fresh or frozen green beans. I do recommend that you let the frozen green beans thaw slightly before placing them in the crockpot. Otherwise, they tend to make the green bean casserole a little too watery.
- Change it up! Use canned cheddar soup in place of the cream of mushroom for a cheesy green bean casserole.
