Turkey taking up all the oven space? Don’t stress—this slow-cooker green bean casserole will save you from a Thanksgiving dinner dilemma. The technique is simple: Toss the main ingredients into your slow cooker and leave it be. Then, 30 minutes before everyone sits down to feast, stir in a few plus-ups like mushrooms, red bell peppers, almonds and half-and-half. Top with bread crumbs or croutons for a crunchy contrast to the creamy beans, and you’ve got a classic that can’t be beat! MORE+ LESS-
