So, without further ado, I give you my first slow cooker recipe.
One-Dish Christmas Dinner
one can French cut green beans
one can cream of mushroom soup
approximately 1/4 cup of onion, sliced thin
garlic powder, to taste
black pepper, to taste
cayenne, to taste (optional)
8 oz. of ham (I made this first using a Smithfield's Anytime boneless ham steak, but I've made it with cubed cooked ham as well)
one medium sweet potato, peeled and cubed
Pour green beans, mushroom soup, onion, garlic powder, pepper, and cayenne into crock pot and stir.
Layer ham, then sweet potato on top, cover and let it go.
* I add a little extra cayenne on top to give the sweet potato a nice kick.
Cook on high for the first couple hours, then on low for the last couple, if possible.
And, if I had a larger slow cooker, I might add a can of corn as well. If you try this, please let me know how it turns out!
I am always looking for new ideas and ways to make a similar dish different so that our taste buds don't get bored, so if you change or add anything when you try this recipe, please let me know in the comments below!
