Green Bean Casserole

We pride ourselves on having the most laid back Thanksgiving of all time. We stay in our pajamas (or run the Turkey Trot, shower, and put pajamas back on), cater most of our meal, and simply enjoy time together. In the midst of our relaxation, we do find time to prepare a few homemade favorites, one of which is this green bean casserole. It’s similar to it’s traditional counterpart, but is dressed up with a few fun ingredients, and made simpler by use of the crock pot.

1 large bag french cut frozen green beans (I use just cut green beans)
1 large can french fried onions
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
8 ounce can of sliced water chestnuts
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Mix last five ingredients together. Layer in a crock pot as follows: green beans, onions, cheese, and water chestnuts. Pour mixture over top. Cook on low for 7 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours.

I also grew up learning to make a mean apple pie from my dad. We make a crumble topping, which in my opinion is the only kind of apple pie worth eating.

What’s your favorite dish to make or eat at Thanksgiving?
