Easy Recipe: Crockpot Navy Beans and Ham #TxBacon

Sharing is caring!

#txbacon

Each year we go to my sister’s house for Easter. She makes lunch/dinner, we hunt eggs, and many years there is an egg fight between siblings. I might be part of this egg fight. I might encourage this egg fight.

Back up a second. Each year Lenny and I are shopping at the last-minute for Easter basket goodies. This year was not an exception.

Let me tell you, it was slim pickings at Walmart. I may have freaked a little.

While we were at Walmart I grabbed what I needed to make Crockpot Navy Beans and Ham as this would be my lovely contribution to Easter dinner.

Here is how you make these yummy beans that are perfect for  Easter dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb dry navy beans
  • 1/3 cup red onion
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 large carrot (I used 6 baby carrots)
  • 6 oz. ham  (I used @PetitJeanMeats)
  • 6 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt and pepper to taste

Soak your beans over night in water.

The next morning, drain and rinse well.

Pick out any bad beans.

Dice your onion.

Dice your celery stalk.

Dice one large carrot or about 6 baby carrots.

I used baby carrots because I already had them on hand.

Dice up your ham.

Dump the rinsed/soaked beans into the crockpot.

Throw in the ham, onion, carrot and celery.

Toss in the garlic, bay leaf, salt and pepper.

Add the water.

Pop a lid on it and cook on high for 8 hours.

I used this recipe as a template, but for a 6 qt crockpot, the cook time she suggests is not long enough. My beans took 8 hours on high before they were done. Just cook them on high all day. Once they are done, move them to the warm option to keep them heated.

When they are done this is what they will look like.

And your house will smell like a baked ham.

Yum!

Scoop the beans and ham into bowls.

Serve with sandwiches or with your favorite Easter dinner.
