I cook the green bean casserole in my crock pot. I mix in some of the french onions for flavor. I brown some of the onions in the toaster oven for a crispy garnish on the top; or place the crispy onions in a bowl for each person to sprinkle on their own serving.
I recently heard of someone that fancied up the green bean casserole by using red bell pepper and bacon. Sounded so good! (11/21/2004)
We usually use Italian Beans instead of green beans. They are also green but have an interesting flavor and makes a delicious dish. They can be purchased by the can or frozen. They are wider, flatter beans.
