Side dishes might be my favorite part of any meal. Although I love enjoying them when I sit down to eat, I don't really love making them while I'm trying to get the rest of the meal ready. Timing is everything at that point, and I don't have time to be fussing with side dishes.
That's why I love my slow cooker and green beans. Throw the beans in the slow cooker and you have a very easy side dish for your meal. Check out the recipes below that will hopefully make your life easier, too.

1. Green beans with bacon
All this recipe really takes is throwing green beans and onions in a slow cooker with herbs and a little bit of liquid. To make it even tastier, add bacon that's been cooked separately at the end. Those who enjoy bacon know the flavors it can impart. The bacon doesn't have to be fresh out of the pan. You can cook it before you start the rest of the meal or forget all about it and just enjoy the green beans.
2. Green bean casserole
Green bean casserole is truly a favorite food, especially thanks to tender beans swimming in all of that sauce. The crunchy onions on top are really just the salty, savory icing to it all. When making the recipe from scratch, however, it can be a bit of a pain. There are so many steps, and completing all those steps can take a really long time. Sweat over the stove no more. In the recipe below, you can let the slow cooker take over the hard lifting so you're free to do whatever you want.
3. Green beans and chicken thighs
One-pot meals that come straight out of the slow cooker are a beautiful thing, aren't they? There's no muss, no fuss and no standing over the stove fiddling with getting a meal just right. That's why the recipe below will quickly become a favorite for any cook.
4. Green beans, bacon and potatoes
The whole idea of using a slow cooker – a powerhouse kitchen appliance – is that it's supposed to make mealtime easy, right? It can be disappointing when you see that something needs to be browned before going into the slow cooker. But guess what? The recipe below is a delight because it's literally a dump and cook version, whether you're using cooked bacon or raw.
5. Green beans and pork
Many ways exist to make green beans and pork. You can select pork chops, pork tenderloin or hot dogs, if you're so inclined. The recipe below features Italian pork sausage.
