Since it's so frackin cold out today, I thought I'd share a great slow cooker comfort food recipe with you. It may not be *the* healthiest recipe in all the world, but when it's cold outside, who wants food that's *good* for you? *shudder* This recipe comes from my slow cooker bible: Fix It and Forget It
Ground Beef Casserole
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
6-8 potatoes, sliced
1 medium onion, sliced
14.5 oz can cut green beans with juice
1/2 tsp salt
dash of pepper
10 3/4 oz can cream of mushroom soup
Crumble uncooked ground beef in bottom of slow cooker. Add potatoes, onion, salt and pepper. Pour beans over all. Spread can of mushroom soup over bans.
Cover. Cook on low 6-8 hours.
Variation: Brown the beef before putting in the slow cooker. Mix half a soup can of water with the mushroom soup before placing over beans.
NOTES: I used the variation. I just couldn't bring myself to put raw hamburger in the bottom of the slow cooker.
It's not much to look at, but I liked this, and so did the hubs. I think next time, though, I'll spice up the beef a bit when I cook it and maybe use a roasted garlic cream of mushroom soup.
Well...I'm off to do...something. LOL I have lots of pics to prep for the blog, and I have a giveaway to put together and photograph, too. Maybe, if you're lucky, you'll get a bonus post from me later today. Where ever you are, stay warm! How's the weather in your area today?
