Before I start preparing some yummy super bowl eats at my house, first things first. Last week Texas received lots of ice and then snow. Hard to believe we got both in the same week.
Slow Cooker White Beans cooked with Ham Hocks cook up so creamy and delicious with lots of smoky ham flavor. It’s winter comfort food in a bowl and makes me want to curl up on a couch in front of a roaring fire with a bowl of these beans in my lap.
Do any of you other Moms & Dad’s make your kids cook? Because apparently that is listed under to ‘cruel and unusual punishment’ category on Friday nights.
The herb and vegetable mixture in these great northern beans season them perfectly, and the slow cooker makes it super easy.
SOME OF THE BEST PEOPLE REVIEWS BEFORE READING RECIPE
“This was a big hit. I used dried lima beans, to recreate my father-in-law’s butter beans. DH said it was very close, and gave it a thumbs up. It did take longer than 8 hours to cook – next time, I’ll start on high for a few hours, then switch to low. Served with cornbread. Thanks for sharing! — Update: I’ve had good luck with cooking it for 3.5 hours on high, then 5 hours on low, or just 5 hours on high.”
“Very quick and easy, a never-fail recipe. My family and friends just love it. Serve with corn chips, diced onions, and shredded Cheddar cheese.”
“This chili is a family favorite! It has won several chili competitions and is a definite crowd-pleaser!”
