MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 27, 2013

Great recipe! Pottsy was concerned about flavor - cook your own beans with ham hock, drain and use them as you would the canned ones.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 4, 2012

The recipe was very simple to make and was very tasty. I made double the liquid because there wasn't enough for my liking and I know this was healthy but I added 1/4 cup of real bacon bits for my husband.

MY REVIEW

This was really good but does need just a bit more something in the line of flavor. I will definitely make it again and will experiment with different options. My daughter and grand-daughter liked it also. My 18 month old grand-daughter liked picking the beans out and eating them by themselves.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 10, 2011

Hubby and I thought this was very good. The only thing I changed was to add 1 stalk of chopped celery in place of the celery flakes. It added a little crunch. This will be made again.
