Slow-Cooker Green Bean Casserole

  • Yield: 10 servings
  • Cook time: 6 Hours, 30 Minutes


  • 3 cup(s) canned fried onion
  • 5 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter
  • 10 ounce(s) mushrooms sliced 1/4"
  • 4 clove(s) garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) dried thyme
  • 1/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cup(s) low-sodium chicken broth Swanson's organic
  • 1 1/4 cup(s) heavy cream
  • 2 pound(s) green beans trimmed into 1" pieces
  • 2 slice(s) hearty white bread


1. MAKE SAUCE Pulse 1 cup canned fried onions in food processor until finely ground; set aside. Melt 3 tbs. butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper and cook until mushrooms release their liquid, about 5 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high and cook until liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and thyme and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add flour and ground onions and cook until golden, about 1 minute. Stir in broth and cream and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce is very thick and creamy, about 10 minutes.

2. SLOW-COOK Combine sauce and green beans in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low until beans are tender, 5 to 6 hours.

3. TOAST TOPPING Meanwhile, pulse 2 slices bread and 2 tablespoons butter in food processor until coarsely ground. Toast bread crumbs and 2 cups onions in clean skillet over medium-high heat until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Top green beans with bread-crumb mixture. Serve.

MAKE AHEAD: Sauce and topping can be refrigerated in separate airtight containers for 2 days. To finish, microwave sauce, covered, for 1 minute before proceeding with step 2. Crisp bread-crumb mixture in skillet before topping beans.
