A lot of women purchase shoes or clothes, not me. I buy Crock-pots and cookbooks. On any day, I would choose a new cookbook over a new pair of shoes or piece of clothing. There is nothing like seeing the smiles on friends and family when they are truly enjoying something I have prepared to eat. This is why I get so excited to try new recipes, and what makes it even better is trying them in my crock-pot. If you have eaten at my house, I probably used my crock-pot to prepare at least one of the dishes on the menu. I have several crock-pots and many days they are all full. Lima Bean Casserole is a delicious creamy cheesy side dish. I grew up eating it, but the Lima Bean Casserole was not prepared in a crock-pot. Since I am a huge crock-pot fan, I just had to try using it to make my husband’s favorite Lima Beans. It turned out just as creamy and delicious as normal.
I would love to hear from you, especially if you have never had a Lima Bean casserole. I am just curious to find out if Lima Bean Casserole is just a southern dish. I hope you will give these Lima Beans a try in your crock-pot and let me know what you think.
Lima Bean Casserole Recipe
- 1-10 ounce can Cheddar Cheese Soup
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1-10 ounce package frozen Lima Beans, completely thawed
- 3/4 cup chopped celery
- 1 TB Worchestershire Sauce
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 6 ounce container of French’s Fried Onions (1 cup to mix inside the recipe and the rest to top the lima bean casserole)
- Mix together all these ingredients in a large bowl except for 1 cup French Fried Onions.
- Spray a crock-pot (I used a 5 quart crock-pot) with a cooking spray.
- Pour the ingredients into the crock-pot
- Top with the remaining French Fried Onions.
- This recipe only serves 6 to 8. You may want to double it!
Cook on low for 3 hours. The Lima beans will be bubbling around the edges when they are done. Turn the crock-pot to warm until you are ready to serve them.
What is on our Thanksgiving and Christmas table besides this Green Bean Casserole? I am pretty sure you will find most of these side dishes on any Southern Thanksgiving or Christmas table. My family loves these simple dishes. I guess it is tradition that I have to fix these sides or at least most of this list. I do need my family to narrow the list down. Usually, everyone gets to pick their favorite side dish and they help prepare that dish. The side dishes highlighted in blue are links to the recipes already on my blog.
