Holiday Comfort Food with a Twist! Cajun Green Bean Casserole in VitaClay!

Suitable for VitaClay models VF7700 and VM7900 series.

With the holidays just around the corner you may be scoping out recipes for your holiday party arsenal. We look forward to our holiday favorite "comfort foods" all year long, but sometimes it's fun to add a tiny twist to keep it interesting. This Cajun-inspired green bean casserole is full of the comforting flavors that everyone craves, with a Cajun kick that everyone will love. 

Free up your oven any season of the year by preparing your Green Bean Casserole in your Vitaclay slow cooker/rice cooker. This also makes for a great cook-ahead meal so that you don’t having to spend all day in the kitchen preparing your holiday meal. Therefore you’ll be spending more time with your friends and family this year. We’ve gone ahead and spiced up our recipe up a bit by adding Cajun seasonings and some colorful veggies.

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds of fresh green beans cut into one inch pieces
  • 1 cup french fried onions
  • 4 slices of cooked bacon, chopped
  • ½ cup celery, chopped
  • ½ sweet onion, chopped
  • ½ red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • ½ cup milk or half & half
  • 1 cup broth
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning

Directions:

  1. Place the green beans, half the bacon, celery, onion, bell pepper, soup, milk, and 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning into your VitaClay slow cooker. Mix well to combine.
  2. Cover and cook on the "soup" setting for 1 hour until the green beans are tender.
  3. Move green bean mixture into a serving dish and sprinkle on the French fried onions, the remainder of the bacon and 1 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning. You can place in a 350F oven for about 10-15 minutes to lightly brown the top.
  4. Serve

You can also make this dish a day ahead without adding the toppings. On the day you want to serve; preheat oven to 350F and add toppings to your casserole. Place in the over for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned. 

Yields about 10-12 1/2 cup servings.
