It’s been raining here the past couple of days, big time. I’ve been swearing that I’m going to start making some meals that I can freeze for busy soccer nights, and I’ve finally started. Last night I dusted off my crockpot and made this incredibly simple ham and beans recipe. It made a big batch so we froze some for another meal. Whenever possible I try to double our dinners to do this so I can get ahead…and be able to take some nights off from kitchen duty. 🙂
Tonight I’m working on Potato soup…if it all turns out I plan to share soon!
Simple Ham and Beans
- 1 28 oz can baked beans ( I used a maple bacon flavor)
- 1 15 oz can kidney beans
- 1 15 oz can black beans
- 1 15 oz can garbanzo beans
- 1 15 oz can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 4 cups diced ham
- 1 cup minced onions
- 2 cups sliced carrots
Drain kidney, black, and garbanzo beans. Add all ingredients into crockpot and place on a 6-hour setting. Enjoy!!
This rain the past 24 hours has been a little crazy, eh? Perfect weather for this dish though — and can't wait to hear if the potato soup turns out! I love potato soup.
Yes it has! The sun can't get here soon enough! The potato soup turned out great…we actually had it for dinner tonight, and my kids only complained a little bit about "soup" two nights in a row…even though I tried to explain that the ham and beans wasn't soup 😉
Soup with a little garlic cheese bread sounds so comforting now- especially after an evening that I kept waking up for all the wind and hard rain! I love the idea of just cooking a big batch, one for now and one for a busy evening later- I just wish my freezer was big enough to accommodate that!
Beans are so good for your heart! 🙂 And soup just is such a heart warming meal. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us at Countdown in Style 🙂 xo
I love ham and beans, your meal looks delicious! I just started a new link-up, Meal Planning Monday Recipe Link-Up and would love to invite you to share your recipe at my linky party. 🙂 http://www.aprilshomemaking.com/2014/03/meal-planning-monday-recipe-link-up.html
We don't eat a lot of ham. This looks delicious. I would love to try it for the family! Thanks for linking up with Countdown in Style!
I love ham and beans, although we don't eat it a lot. I never thought to add baked beans to the pot. I'm sure that would give it a really great flavor. Thanks for linking up to Tips and Tricks! Kathleen @ Fearlessly Creative Mammas
